For 2020/21 the Master, Richard Evans chose as his theme ‘Vision 2020’
In 2019/20 the Master, Pam Taylor, had as her theme ‘Fusion Skills’
In 2018/19 the Master, Lis Goodwin had as her theme ‘It All Adds Up’ about Maths
The tradition has been that the Master chooses both the theme and the speakers for the seminar programme although this is not essential. Planning for the seminar series starts in the January of each year with the aim that the programme can be announced in the autumn of the Master’s year. There may also be links to speakers at dinners and The Franklin lecture.
The Master aims to chair each event if possible. The Education Secretaries help to find suitable people to invite for the audience and the series can be seen as an external facing series. In some years a record has been made of the seminars and their discussion and distributed via appropriate media.
