Inspiring Excellence Seminar Series


Following the success of the 2016 Learning and Teaching Conference, the Learning and Teaching Development Unit has launched the Inspiring Excellence Seminar Series. 

Aligned with 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. Inspiring Excellence Seminars will take place approximately four times a year.

The inaugral seminar event took place on 7th September 2016 and was led by Professor Sally Brown who addressed a range of contemporary issues facing the HE sector, in particular student  retention and challenges facing the sector in the next five years (click here for event media and a full review of the day). A second event addressing Authentic Assessment is currently being organised for February 2017... more details to follow as they are confirmed!

The forthcoming Spring 2017 Seminar series event is now scheduled for Wednesday 8th Ferbruary to be led by Professor Sue Bloxham. Sue will be delivering a workshop addressing Authentic Assessment and a TED talk exploring staff and students understanding of academic judgement. Click above to book your place!
