Two-day event at Birmingham City University on 28th-29th March on the topic of ‘Making a Difference’
You are warmly invited to book on to this symposium, organised by the Association of National Teaching Fellows but open to everyone at Edgbaston, with the daytime events at BCU Edgbaston, the dinner at Edgbaston Cricket Club and accommodation (if required) bookable at a discount at Birmingham University’s new Edgbaston Conference Centre. Supported by AdvanceHE, the event is very competitively-priced due to the generosity of BCU’s Vice-Chancellor, NTF Philip Plowden who is not charging NTF for the use of rooms on their campus. There is a full programme of workshops, plenaries and panels, including keynotes by Theo Gilbert, the Times Higher Innovative Teacher of 2018 on ‘Making a Difference though Compassionate Teaching’ and NTFs Haleh Morajev and Viv Rolfe in tandem on ‘Making a difference to students’ and staff wellbeing’. A full day strand on day one led By Pauline Kneale, Jenny Winter and Ruth Pilkington is based on their HEA-funded project on Evaluating Teaching Impact, and the Friday morning offers an option for those aiming to achieve personal chairs led by the Professors in Preparation network. The whole two-day event is £250, with reductions for day delegates and NTF/CATE winners.
The event is bookable via the AdvanceHE website https://www.advance-he.ac.uk/node/813
