"the networking was great and it was reassuring that we all had experienced similar feelings when taking up our new posts"
"...it made me realise that my fears were not unfounded, and [I] gained reassurance how I could address these and develop. [I] found it useful to talk to others in the same situation."
The most useful part of the day was "Understanding the process of expert to novice and being able to relate this to personal experience. Also having this underpinned with theory was most beneficial and useful personally in relating to my experience and linking this with students experiences."
