The ARC Timetabling Practitioners Group is a forum for timetablers in HEIs to discuss issues relating to the theory and practice of timetabling, to explore new ideas and developments and to share best practice.

The Group seeks to identify ways to raise the profile and highlight the importance of timetabling in HEIs and to improve understanding among non-timetablers of the demands and complexities of timetabling.

There is a strong link between timetables and space planning although the two don’t always sit within the same area of an institution. Space, room styles and utilisation are frequently discussed and often appear on the agenda at meetings. If you do have an interest in this, regardless of whether you are a timetable practitioner or not, you are more than welcome to join the group, please contact Clare Gough - C.L.Gough@hull.ac.uk
