Look after your alumni

When you teach, do you wonder where has the years gone and when it comes to the students, what are they doing? Maybe we need to get (better) at maintaining a relationship with our alumni - meet with them occasionally and learn about their experiences (good and bad) in the sectors we teach.

Many organisations have a broad concept of alumni - however for further education and my old organisation included. There is an intangible notion of alumni, belonging and what it was to be part of the learning experience.

Everyone I met with recently from my old computing department had positive as well as realistic tales to share. Naturally this is a self selecting group - but some were realistic about their experiences.

Our plan is to meet again, invite others and hope that this occasional opportunity works for all.
