Practical strategies series

Our 'Practical strategies for ...' workshop series will run through academic year 2023/24. Information on workshops and online booking.

Update Sep 2023

The Institute for Academic Development continues to offer a mix of online and on-campus activities to staff and students.

During AY23/24, we will be running an increased number of on-campus options compared to the last couple of years. Do therefore check workshop and event information carefully when booking, to be sure of the mode of delivery.


Workshops: overview

The series consists of short workshops on various learning and teaching themes.

Our aim is that staff will leave with practical ideas they can take away and use in their own practice.

2023/24 schedule

As the year progresses more workshops will be added as details are confirmed and so we would ask you to please check back throughout the academic year.
