A good sequence from high-tech to student generated curriculum. I read an article about having students develop the curriculum long ago (will share with the group), and now Ive seen it in action. (AB)The meeting in the Auckland University Epsom campus was very full of important information.2. What did you not like? • Raw chicken burger • xxxxxOrbit travel--very slow response time to requests for initial planning and booking. • Consider a different travel agency with more timely response • xxCredit card still smoking • I would not recommend working with Jodi Skidmore again.
