In 2018, rather than an intensive Learning and Teaching Week, there will be the 2018 Learning and Teaching Showcase Series. This provides several opportunities to disseminate grants, projects and teaching innovations, and has been discussed and approved by University Learning and Teaching Committee.
Learning and Teaching Showcase Series dates for 2018:
- Wednesday 30 May, 1-4pm (completed)
- Thursday 15 November, 1-4pm
Learning and Teaching week celebrates our quality learning and teaching practice, and fosters professional learning, inspiration and exploration through provocative presentations and discussion. One of the best ways to get ideas and inspiration is to learn from others. Learning and Teaching week gives staff the opportunity to share good practice and see how others are making learning happen and bringing their ideas into fruition.
