Dear colleagues,

We are very excited to announce the TLC, a cross-institutional collaboration to provide joint CPD opportunities for everybody teaching and/or supporting learning in Higher Education. TLC  brings together colleagues from different disciplines, institutions and countries. TLCs are also open to students in HE and we are very interested in including students’ contributions to the programme.

Together, we will discuss and debate a variety of current teaching and learning topics in a series of monthly webinars which will be a great opportunity to reflect on our practice but also share good practice and find out what is happening beyond our own institutional walls in the more global HE landscape.

All webinars are open to the wider community to join.

Our first webinar will be on Tuesday the 25 March, 12-1pm GMT (please access the World Clock to convert to your local time).

Our guest speaker is Joao Ponciano (@jpbponciano) from MMU who will  share and discuss with us assessment innovations in HE.
