QED Seminar Series

Following the success of the Annual Learning and Teaching Conference, the Quality Enhancement Directorate has developed a Seminar Series - to inspire and inform staff throughout the year.

Aligned with the current strategic objectives of the university, the series will showcase innovative practice from across the institution and beyond. 

Seminars will also provide opportunity for Cardiff Met staff to engage with influential members of the UK teaching and learning community, in order to discuss contemporary approaches to the delivery of teaching excellence.
