1. Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL)
SUMS have just advised on a three-year plan for QMUL and will present this as a means of framing a plan to participants. QMUL will also update on progress.


2. University of Sheffield
Sheffield will update on current situation and plans.


3. University of Leeds
Leeds will provide an update on their introduction of lecturer availability collection and present their curriculum modelling tool and plans for its use.


4. University of Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton has just appointed a project manager to take forward the SUMS recommendations made when SUMS undertook a timetabling health check for them recently. Wolverhampton will present their draft plan.
