The Pedagogical Inquiry Network (PIN) is for pedagogical researchers and those interested in pedagogical research from across the University. Established as PIN in March 2019, the rebranded network builds upon the success of the original initiative (Ped Lab), broadening its remit to include all academic staff with an interest in studying teaching and learning in higher education.

Please see some details below:

  • PIN meets once a month – 13.00-14.00 (subject to change) on a day within the last week of every month (apart from holiday periods). We try to vary the days, depending on the availability of speakers;
  • PIN is closely associated with the Learning & Teaching Network but will focus on pedagogical research;
  • Meetings are alternatively at Old Aberdeen and Foresterhill – but there is always the opportunity to join via Blackboard Collaborate at either site or at another venue;
  • Meetings flexibly follow the following format: First 10 min – open chat/ peer support, Next 30-40 min – presentation or workshop, Last 10 min questions/further discussion/ peer support.
