Following the success of the Annual Learning and Teaching Conference, the Quality Enhancement Directorate has developed a number of 'QED Talks' and a Seminar Series - to inspire and inform staff throughout the year.
In these monthly short and snappy lunchtime sessions, colleagues will introduce a focussed element of learning and teaching. There will be case studies to spice up your practice, think-pieces, and controversial & contemporary topics to explore. Forget TED talks, QED talks will spark your teaching imagination! No booking is required for these events - and feel free to bring your lunch!
Due to the current situation, the next QED TALK scheduled for 18th March, 12.15 - 1pm, in the Heart Space, CSAD has been postposed. A new date will be published soon. Leanne Freeman will be presenting 'Gender in academia and the Women's Network'. In this QED Talk, Leanne will explore how her personal identity as a feminist underpins and drives her academic work.
No need to book - see you there!
Previous QED Talks:
Thurs 30th Jan 2020, Sarah Curran (CSSHS) 'Embedding creativity into teaching'
Tues 10th Dec 2019, Henry Dawson (CSSHS) "Feedback – what goes wrong and what can we do about it?"
Some topics are worthy of deeper exploration: In these longer 2-hour sessions, we delve into contemporary themes in pedagogy. We explore the theory and research behind a range of important developments in learning and teaching, and discuss the application and challenges of these key developments - both to your own practice and to organisational processes. (A light buffet lunch will be provided)
More details of forthcoming QED Seminars coming very soon!
