Old wine new bottle? The what and why of Teaching Innovation in HE.
In this session you'll get to mess about with Lego, your phone and Facebook - in the name of education. What's not to like?
Through this educational play, and some other examples of teaching excellence across UoM, we will critically explore innovative teaching practice and ask why should HE lecturers be concerned with it?
This discussion aligns to the overall aims of CHERIL to develop teaching innovation and excellence. The latter part of the session will be dedicated to University of Manchester’s Centre for Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Learning (CHERIL); touching on what we do, how to work with us, the services and grants available and how teaching excellence links to career progression.
I hope you will be able to join us,
Dr Kelly Pickard-Smith
