Schedule of CEL’s ‘iInnovate’ workshops in semester 1

With a new building and a new semester, it is a great opportunity to reflect on our teaching practice.

CEL is supporting staff across the university to ‘try something different‘ this year to enhance their teaching and professional practice.  One of the initiatives within this campaign is a BU-wide scheme called ‘iInnovate‘ where academic staff are encouraged to adopt one new innovation in their teaching.  With the agreement of all Faculties, staff are invited to use a tool from the TEL Toolkit or any other innovation for example creativity, assessment and Lego Serious Play.

To support iInnovate, CEL are running a series of workshops which are listed below.

Watch out for more details on the CEL blog or contact Debbie Holley or David Biggins for more information.  We will also be running sessions at Lansdowne, dates tbc.
