Practical strategies series

Our 'Practical strategies for ...' workshop series will run through academic year 2021/22. Information on workshops and online booking.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

The Institute for Academic Development office is currently closed to in-person events and enquirers. We are still working mostly remotely, and will continue to run online events and provide digital-based support and information for staff and students.

Update Sep 21: The IAD will continue to run most of our events and workshops online as we move into the new academic year.  Online events have been popular with staff and students, more convenient and easier to fit in with other constraints and time demands.  We will also begin to run events on campus as soon as it is safe to do so and when room capacity is available.  Looking to the future we will offer a mix of online and on-campus opportunities to staff and students.


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.

2021/22 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.
