Dear Colleagues,

Following on from the Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards at University Day, myself and Dr Sam Grogan, Pro Vice-Chancellor Student Experience, would like to invite you to attend the first in a series of Teaching & Learning Showcase events.

Following reflection on the excellent practice demonstrated in all the applications for the Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards (VCDTA) and other examples of good practice highlighted elsewhere, it is appropriate that we look for opportunities to showcase and share these. The Teaching and Learning Showcase will enable the winners to profile examples of excellent teaching and learning practice and to provide a forum for colleagues to discuss ways to adapt and implement ideas in their own areas.

The date identified to hold the first of these events is Wednesday 13th September 2017, and it will run from 9:00 – 2:30 in the Chapman Building. Colleagues are asked to register for three workshops in advance of the event here.

The Teaching & Learning Showcase programme will be as follows:

09:00 – 09:30 Registration and refreshments

09:30 – 10:00 Welcome from Vice-Chancellor Professor Helen Marshall followed by the purpose of the day from Dean of Students Professor Neil Fowler

10:00 – 10:30  Overview of workshops by the Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards Winners for 2017, the Quality and Enhancement Office and Office 365 by Microsoft

10:45 – 11:15 1st rotation of workshops

11:15 – 11:45 Refreshment break

11:45 – 12:15 2nd rotation of workshops

12:15 – 13:00 Lunch break
