Reflections is the newsletter which focuses on teaching, learning and assessment in Queen’s and more generally in higher education. It is published once a semester by the Centre for Educational Development and is a vehicle for members of staff to discuss new approaches to teaching and supporting learning. Reflections also provides news and updates on learning and teaching events and initiatives within Queen’s.
