Aberdeen hosts the international residency of the AU-NTL OD master's degree programme

In March, The Chaos Game played host to 14 postgraduate students and their tutors on their international residency with the NTL Institute of Applied Behavioural Science and the American University.  During their stay they undertook compressed full-cycle consultancy projects with Royal Dutch Shell, Grampian Police, the Scottish Government’s Learning Connections Team and the University of Aberdeen Development Trust.  

Sharon O’Loan, Campaign Director of the University Development Trust, said: “We had a fantastic experience with the students.  They were supportive, clear and very productive and we were delighted with the outcome of the project.”  Cath Hamilton, Adult Literacies Manager of the Learning Connections Adult Literacies Team added: ”I would like to thank the students who worked with us.  It was a pleasure to participate in such a dynamic and worthwhile process."  Professor Katherine Farquhar, programme director, said:  “This was the first time the residency has been held in Europe and it was a huge success.  Our students’ consulting skills were really tested by the challenging projects offered to them.  We are already looking to plan our second residency in Aberdeen.”  

Since 1980, The NTL Institute and the American University together have educated, trained and developed over 1000 postgraduate students to serve as internal and external organisation development practitioners in the public, private, NGO and non-profit sectors.    The Chaos Game was very pleased to be able to host this programme, and we thank our client organisations for providing the students with what they, themselves, have described as life-changing experiences.  

If your organisation would be interested in the possibility of free consulting support as part of a future international residency programme with NTL and the American University, please contact: info@thechaosgame.com
