Neil, last year I gave two lectures and a practical-seminar in ENV 1A01. The lectures were
in week 7 and 12 and were upon 1) climate change and 2) peak oil and its effects
respectively. I had an agreement with Graham that my week 12 lecture would be transfered
to week 7 for 2009 so consolidating my teaching in this module. I also conveyed the
information last year that the practical/seminar I give in week 7 is not suitable for
assessment, yet this coming year students are still informed that it is.
Now I find that, without any consultation, my second lecture (and probably the most
important one) has been eliminated and the assessment still incorporates my
practical/seminar. Can you confirm this and give me the rationale behind your decision?

Welcome back to 1A01 - where we inspire the next generation of environmental scientists.
Attached you will find the updated course manual for the semester. It is all but unchanged
from last year. So please CHECK THE DATES AND THE SCHEDULE AND CONFIRM that you are able to
contribute in the same manner as last year. Please let me know as soon as possible if there
are any changes.
Note that the rooms are not yet confirmed I am still negotiating and will confirm those
next week if the finalized and confirmed version of this manual.
