Learning and Teaching Workshops

The workshops in this section are designed for lecturers, research staff and teaching assistants who would like to develop and build on their knowledge and skills related to teaching in higher education.  Those relatively new to teaching in higher education and more experienced staff are welcome to attend.  The majority of the sessions are half-day workshops unless indicated otherwise. Professional Development Series comprises a number of lunchtime sessions throughout the academic year.

The workshops in the CPD programme have been organised to reflect the Higher Education Academy’s Professional Standards framework.
