Hi Guenther,

I'm very sorry to hear about your dean -- best wishes for his swift recovery.

It sounds like at the least, you'll need help with this subsection, or that you may want to pass on responsibility for it and focus on the many other things you have going on.

However, I don't think that the curriculum subsection can be cancelled without damage of the LLD final report: This seems like a very, very key piece of our recommendations and of moving forward. I would like us to at least identify another group to charge this with (i.e. to recommend "X create a curriculum"). However, my preference is that we recruit someone (who's either on the group at present, or known to us and willing to volunteer) to draft such a section.

What do others think?
