QED Talks & Seminar Series


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.

QED Talks

QED Talks logoIn 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!

Seminar Series

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!
