10th Association of National Teaching Fellow's Symposium

Together with Simon Thomson, I participated in the 10th Association of National Teaching Fellow’s symposium in Birmingham on Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st March. Sessions included inspiring keynotes from Professors Sally Brown and Pauline Kneale, Pecha Kuchas from new and established NTFs, discussions on the UKPSF, deepening the relationship between teaching and research, and using cognitive styles in pedagogy. We also continued working on the NTF Journal and the latest NTF book. The National Teaching Fellows are an interesting group and the conversations between sessions covered a whole spectrum of innovative approaches to teaching and learning across UK higher education!
