The Faculty hosted a Teaching and Learning Showcase event on Tuesday 11th January 2011.

This event included a number of presentations given by colleagues from across the Faculty to discuss a range of approaches and technologies to improve improving student learning, student experience and the staff experience. The presentations centred around the main themes of:

  • Enhancing student identity
