Friday 20th May 2016

University L & T Day 
The morning sessions will focus on key themes in L&T for 2016-17 (inc. QA Framework/co-design, DSA changes and its impact, TEF and an update on CMA, NSS and KIS. The afternoon will consist of a series of parallel sessions--some collaborative discussions relating to the key themes, and some practical workshops (inc. Virtual & Augmented Reality, Classroom Response, using e-Assessment, and Social Annotation technology).

Agenda, 20 May 2016


These arrangements represent a reduction in formal L & T events. However, in addition to compulsory attendance at the above, all tutors will be required to attend at least five one-hour meetings of Communities of Practice throughout the academic year. This will replace the hours represented by the day removed from the schedule. Departments will also have the opportunity, should they wish, to schedule a L & T event during the Easter Vacation.

These arrangements, whilst reducing the disruption to teaching, give staff an increased amount of flexibility in what L & T events they attend and also ensure that the key University messages are communicated effectively.
