REVIEW OF THE SCHOOL OF ANTHROPOLOGY

As part of its system of rolling reviews of departments and faculties every ten years, the General Board has established a committee to review the School of Anthropology. The terms of reference are:

(a) to consider the provision and quality of teaching, the future development of teaching, and the quality of research in the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, and the balance between teaching at graduate and undergraduate levels on the one hand and research on the other, having regard to international standards of excellence;

(b) to consider the content, balance, and methods of examination of the graduate and undergraduate courses and associated quality assurance mechanisms;

(c) to review the organisational and managerial structure within the school, including such matters as academic and non-academic staff planning and recruitment; accommodation and future space needs; and the relationship between the units within the school and between the school and the cognate subject areas with which it is involved in teaching and research;

(d) to make recommendations, bearing in mind, where there are financial implications, the level of resources likely to be available within the University and possible alternative ways of raising funds to implement them.

It is not intended to carry out a full review of the Pitt Rivers Museum's museum functions as part of the present review, but its contributions to the academic activities of the school will be examined.

The review committee is chaired by Mr L.A. Whitehead, Nuffield College, and the other members are Professor Alan MacFarlane, Cambridge University; Professor David Maybury-Lewis, Harvard University; Professor J.D.Y. Peel, SOAS; Professor Peter Rivière, Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology; Professor Mike Rowlands, University College, London; and Professor K.M. Weiss, Pennsylvania State University.

The committee's meetings will be held in Hilary Term 1999, and the committee hopes to submit its report to the General Board towards the middle of Trinity Term 1999.

The committee is in the process of inviting comments from senior and junior members of the School. Any other members of the University who wish to submit written comments on any issues covered by the committee's terms of reference are invited to send them to the secretary of the review committee, Dr A.M. Knowland, Oriental Institute, Pusey Lane, Oxford OX1 2LE (fax: Oxford (2)78190, e-mail: anne.knowland@orinst.ox.ac.uk), by Thursday, 19 November.

ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

2 South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB

Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the University, was established in 1988. The company has been formed to exploit know-how arising out of research funded by the UK Government through the Research Councils and funded by other bodies where the rights are not tied. The function of the company is to ensure that the results of research bring rewards to Oxford, and to the inventors, who are given a financial incentive for exploitation.

Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump sums andor royalties for the use of know-how arising out of research. Isis also exploits the intellectual property of the University by setting up individual companies using venture capital or development capital funds.

Isis' services are also available to individuals who wish to exploit the results of research supported by non-Research Council sources, when there are no prior conditions on the handling of the intellectual property rights. Isis Innovation has at its disposal a small pre-seedcorn fund for paying the costs of protecting intellectual property rights and for taking work to a stage where its potential can be assessed.

Isis finds industrial partners to ensure that new ideas can be developed for market requirements. The company has established the Oxford Innovation Society for major industrial companies, so that they can have a window on Oxford technology and an opportunity to license and invest where appropriate.

A brochure explaining Isis' activities is available. Please contact the above address, or the telephone and fax numbers given below.

Members of the University should contact the Managing Director if they wish to take advantage of the services that Isis provides. (Telephone: (2)72411; fax: (2)72412.)

DEPARTMENT FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION

The Department for Continuing Education exists to make the University accessible to men and women in ways which complement the University's provision for its resident members. Each year the department mounts several hundred courses, either part-time or short full-time, covering most subjects taught within the University (except management and clinical medicine). Courses last anything from one day to ten weeks (full time), and between ten weeks and two years on a part-time basis. Currently about 15,900 students enrol annually for the department's courses, the average length of study being twenty hours. A recent development has been the introduction of technology- assisted courses, using the Internet to supplement classroom teaching. Apart from a large number of individual members of the University who offer courses or give lectures, the Department for Continuing Education works in co- operation with an increasing number of other departments and faculties throughout the University. It welcomes expressions of interest from individuals and departments who wish to become involved in or to explore continuing education activities. The department's main provision is organised through three programme offices (see below), each of which is able to provide more detailed information on current and forthcoming activities. In addition, the Kellogg Residential Centre, when not being used for courses, can occasionally be made available for conferences and other residential meetings.

The Public Programme Office

This Office (Director: Mr R.T. Rowley) offers to the public a wide range of study opportunities in most academic disciplines through part-time day, evening and short residential courses. In 1996--7 almost 12,000 adult students enrolled on lifelong learning programmes offered through the Public Programme Division. Many programmes have open entry and require no formal entry qualifications. However, the majority of courses are now either award-bearing or carry higher education credit. The award- bearing courses are offered at access undergraduate and post graduate level, and do call for evidence of ability to complete the programme satisfactorily. During the summer the Public Programme Division offers a series of study opportunities for domestic and European students through the Oxford University Summer School for Adults, a Local History Summer School and the Summer Academy based at Keble College. The Division engages a large number of part-time tutors, both from within the University and outside, and individuals interested in offering specific courses or contribution to other programmes are invited to contact the office. Details of all courses are publicised in the Annual Prospectus or are available at any time from the Manager of Public Programmes (telephone: Oxford (2)70360).

The International Programmes Office

This office (Director: Dr A. Hawkins) offers a wide range of courses to undergraduates, graduates and continuing education students from around the world. These courses include year-long full-time programmes for Japanese graduates and diplomats from the Republic of China, Taiwan, as well as a large number of three- or four-week courses held during the summer for students from Europe and North America. Programmes are held in partnership with institutions such as the Smithsonian Institution, the University of California at Berkeley, Duke University, the University of Virginia and Northwestern University in America. International Programmes also works with the British Council, the European Commission, and the FCO, as well as offering courses in partnership with the Bodleian Library and many other departments and colleges within the University. Subjects covered in these courses include topics from law and industrial relations through to archaeology, art history, and the physical and biological sciences. Tutors are drawn from Oxford academic and research staff, and expertise is also recruited from outside the University. Programmes vary in size from small groups of twenty students to larger programmes of over 200 participants. During the summer many residential International Programmes, including the Oxford University Summer Programmes in English Literature and in History, Politics and Society, are held in colleges throughout Oxford, in addition to those held at the Rewley House Residential Centre. Over the next few years the range of courses offered by the International Programmes Office will be expanded, drawing in more students from Europe, from countries formerly part of the Soviet Union, and from elsewhere around the world. As the work of the International Programmes Office expands, approaches would be welcomed from those colleges, departments and other institutions who have accommodation from which they would like to generate further income or from individuals with suitable qualifications interested in teaching on international programmes. Telephone: Oxford (2)70456.

Technology-Assisted Lifelong Learning (TALL)

TALL (Director: Jonathan Darby) was established in 1996 with support from the Esmée Fairbairn Charitable Trust and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to investigate and develop new ways of using technology to support lifelong learning. It is directed by Jonathan Darby who previously directed the HE Funding Councils' and DENI's Computers in Teaching Initiative. Many aspects of on- line education remain poorly understood. TALL is conducting research into:

Models of delivery---identifying optimal ways of using technology to deliver courses and educational services;

international transferability---addressing issues such as use of language, culture, educational systems and differing educational needs with the aim of ensuring that Oxford-produced on-line courses are designed in such a way that they will be attractive to students outside the UK;

markets for on-line courses---using surveys to develop an understanding of the nature of the market for on-line courses.

TALL is seeking to use technology to design courses of three types:

Hybrid: short intensive periods in Oxford punctuate Internet- supported study to create a course which uses each form of teaching for the purposes to which it is best suited.

Fully remote: a course in Italian for Intermediate and Advanced Learners has been completed with EU support which can be wholly completed at a distance. A second course, `Databases for Historians', is about to be piloted.

Curriculum on demand: an innovative teaching system based on the finding that many students on continuing professional development courses have highly specific needs that are only partially met by a group-based course. Each student takes a course that is tailored to their specific needs.

The TALL programme would welcome ideas for on-line courses from university colleagues.
