You are newly appointed as Director of Disaster Management at Funversity. Whilst you need to convince both students and staff of the importance and excitement of your subject area your ultimate objective is to keep the University running at all costs!
Staff bulletin .... There are reports of a student acting suspiciously on the North campus...they are slow moving... grunting... drooling and mumbling something that sounds like brains? ... please come and investigate asap.
[[Visit the scene?]]
This sounds like normal student behaviour - it happened last week didn't it?
You hop off your segway (standard issue for Directors at Funversity) at the North Campus. You didn't get details of which classroom the suspicious activity was coming from. You hear sounds from two classrooms in front of you which one do you visit?
[[Disaster Management]]Later that day you are happily enjoying your skinny soya mochaccino with your avocado and artisan sour dough toast when you start to hear scratching and grunting at your door.
The sounds get louder ... and the door creaks under the weight ...
Crash! The door caves in .... A crowd of zombies really, really slowly inch their way to you ... you'll definitely be dead ... well in half an hour ... best head out the convenient patio door you just noticed and change your mind about investigating...

[[Step 1]] You open the door to a scene of panic. The students look frightened ... There appears to be one student on their own who is a funny colour and dribbling slightly moving very slowly in pursuit of the other students. They are getting closer ... very ... very...very...very... slowly.
They look rather zombie like ...
You need to work out why they have changed. Quickish! What do you do?
[[Run Away]]You have made a very good decision.
You open the door to find very happy students!!! Your blood pressure is lowering as you feel your NSS results rising... however you haven't got to the bottom of the original report. You reluctantly go back into the corridor

In fact isn't that information out of date. The students look like they've just been copying the slides down word for word. It's shocking and makes you angry - where is the space for creativity!!
That zombie student looks like they are getting closer.
What should you do next?
Find out more and
[[Its time to go and live in the woods]] You speed onto your segway away from the slow moving zombie ...
Later that day you are enjoying your quinoa, pommegranate and kale salad with your acai Berry juice drink when you see a puddle of drool seap through your doorway. You hear grunting and groaning, there is slow pounding on your door ... the door caves in and it's time to hop out of that convenient fire escape as a glacier of zombielike students dawdle into the room...
We think you need to go back to investigate the classrooms
<iframe src="https://giphy.com/embed/hyYMouu2tR5mM" width="480" height="288" frameBorder="0" class="giphy-embed" allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/zombie-scary-wave-hyYMouu2tR5mM"></a></p>You decide to investigate further and interview the students to see what might have triggered their fellow students zombie like state. Most of them can't tell you anything about the lecture as they have been entertaining themselves snapchatting on their mobile phones. You shake awake one student who decided to stay out all night at a rave, stating that he knew there was no point being awake for this lecture. Another student you spot only just walking in says his lecturer doesn't even notice if he turns up.
You've worked out why this student has turned ... they clearly are being bored into a zombielike state!
What do you do for the other students?
Sneak out quietly and
You remember how much fun the other classroom you saw was having. Send them off to
[[Attend disaster management training]]You sneak out of the classroom, lock the door and dash away on your segway to a lunchtime meeting. The trouble is it's already started but luckily your specially ordered wood fired sour dough pizza is still piping hot and in easy reach, you wash a bite down with a swig of your freshly pressed kiwi and guava juice. As you settle in to meeting you hear familiar noises from behind the door. Crash! A hoard of zombies breaks in ... you know your NSS result is in jepardy as is your job!

You can see your students recovering. They are happy in this creative and interactive training session and they're learning lots about disaster management (whatever that is... clearly we don't know!)

However, you soon become bored, the woods don't have any wifi and you can't watch the latest episode of walking dead ...
We suggest you go back and
