'Inspiring Excellence and Innovation in Academic Practice'

This programme of workshops, activities and events is available to all staff, and is designed around current strategic priorities for the University. The sessions provide the opportunity to learn more about the chosen topic, share good practice across Colleges and gain an external perspective on the subject area through the involvement of a number of external speakers.
