  • City Learning and Teaching Forum

    Welcome to the City Learning and Teaching Forum

    Explore new learning and teaching developments

    Gain new ideas for your teaching

    Discuss with other staff how to support your students

    The City Learning and Teaching forum has been established to enable academics and staff involved in learning, teaching and student support to discuss ideas, explore challenges, share good practice and find out about new developments.

    The lunchtime fora will take place once or twice per term. Each one is based around a different learning and teaching theme. They will be informal and on a drop-in basis and anyone with an interest in education can come along.

    The forum will be overseen by the City Learning and Teaching Committee and will feed into the development of learning and teaching policy and strategy at City.

    Due to the ongoing coronavirus lockdown most of the sessions for the remainder of this year will either be postponed or moved online. Please check these pages for more details as the dates approach.
