Learning & Teaching Network

The Learning & Teaching Network enables discussions, collaboration and professional development opportunities around current issues in teaching, learning and assessment. Established as the Teaching Fellows’ Network in February 2011, the rebranded network will build upon the success of the original initiative, broadening its remit to include all academic and academic-related staff.

The Network meets on the first Wednesday of each month. All staff are welcome to attend subject to their interest and availability.  

Themes covered in the academic year 2020-21, included: Social Media and Digital Scholarship, Group/Team Work in a Blended Learning Context, Applying Pedagogies of Assessment for Learning to Teaching Online, Reflections on Blended Teaching, Helping our Students Connect and Focus in a Blended Learning Context, Promoting Academic Integrity Through Robust Assessment Design, Academic Integrity and Assessment Design, Social Media and Digital Scholarship.
