CEL Events & Communications

The Centre for Excellence in Learning offers opportunities for colleagues to come together to discuss topics of pedagogic importance, to share good practice and to inspire each other.

We have organised a range of events and activities that may interest different groups of academics. We appreciate your support both in attending these events and feeding back about their value. Please take this opportunity to enjoy a bit of thinking space, meet new colleagues and generate some enthusiasm around the value of learning.
