We have agreed to begin development of the open access materials on People’s University in early 2017. There are also other research and partnership possibilities together with People’s University that they would like to explore, one of which we will know more about by the end of next week. Surrey subject matter experts are also in increased teaching commitments this term so it will be better all round to keep discussions and planning going throughout the rest of 2016 so that we can quickly move forward when convenient after that.
We also agreed that water sanitation and environmental health were a good fit for the existing content on People’s University so will be exploring additional environmental health connections too during the next few months.
It also gives me time to afford to read some of their thinking in the (apparently £160 in hardback!) Handbook of Water and Health
