Given that we are ‘Led by Lesley’ this showcase of me and my so-called scholarship is clearly of equal importance to my reputation and the REF and is a key way of pretending we are actually doing key research at Kingston. Can I ask you please to ensure that your staff are signed up for my waffle sessions (we have limited spaces and faculties need to know about numbers for sleeping) and that they recognise this week-long event has the full support of senior staff – turn up or else. The Festival is KAPS accredited for those who need a bit more padding for professional recognition or their CPD reports. I should point out that KUL is likely to be audited by the HEA in the near future and will expect to see a load of meaningless bullshit reports from selected staff with ‘professional’ recognition.
