As a life-long learner, I hope I always question assumptions informing how I conduct myself and carry out my work, but I do expect others likewise to engage constructively, in support of progress. Complex issues can only be nudged forwards if we all work together. #ReflectionFTD
It was good to be updated on the work of the VPRF on Wednesday. It is so important that all branches of our profession are linked to informed policy-making. 
I'm a passionate supporter of the professional model and its role in high quality veterinary care. Supported by key principles, professionals intelligently construct often unique solutions for clients. None should be surprised when the the opposite approach fails #ReflectionFTD
It's humbling that more than 80 years ago, in an address on the 300th anniversary of HE in the US, AE concluded that we're better "able to progress and changes" if we have the "ability for independent thinking and judgement" - perhaps more important today #ReflectionFTD
Alongside discussion on student debt and access, the fees debate is shining a light on the purpose of universities. Surely it is the development of our minds so that we can attach meaning to what we learn and use our understanding purposefully in our work and lives #ReflectionFTD
