With teaching excellence still a major focus of the HE sector, and increasing pressures across institutions to respond to policies such as the subject level TEF in England and challenges such as the mental wellbeing of both staff teams and students our workshops provide practical guidance on improving your teaching practices working alongside peers from a range of institutions and disciplines. These workshops have been created to provide practical support in an interactive way to assist you with implementing policy and new innovative teaching practice developments at module, programme, departmental or faculty level. They will assist you in leading change and monitoring impact, as well as guiding you to recognise your contribution to both your teams and the wider institution.
This series of workshops is designed to support those involved directly in teaching and those who support teaching and learning activity within their institutions and will be of interest across a range of career levels. The workshops will focus on different areas of practice and seek to develop your skills in this area through the use of practical tools and tips. The format of the day will provide a forum for learning, sharing practice and overcoming barriers to excellent teaching and are particularly relevant for those working towards a Senior Fellowship application.
During 2019-20 there will be a series of 10 one day workshops covering a range of topics pertinent to teaching and learning in HE. Each workshop will be led by a Principal or Senior Adviser in the Advance HE Knowledge, Innovation and Delivery team, for some workshops delivery will be in partnership with an Associate of Advance HE. Workshops will be held in York, London, Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff as open programmes and are also available for delivery in house at your institution.

• Inclusive curricular
