Learning and Teaching week


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 you the opportunity to share your good practice and see how others are making learning happen and bringing their ideas into fruition.
