Our lunchtime research webinars offer the opportunity to come together to debate critical issues in HE learning and teaching. Taking newly available pedagogic research and resources as their starting point, our webinars are aimed at those who want to keep up-to-date with new thinking to improve their practice, inform their institutional strategy, and develop policy.
The webinars are highly collaborative, enabling attendees to ask questions, make comments and receive regular updates and resources before, during and after the seminar.
