Wednesday 7th June Invitation to the ‘Aspiring Teaching Fellows’ networking event, run by NTFs for aspiring NTFs’

This event aims to support staff who wish to develop a national profile and who aim to pursue a National Teaching Fellowship. The event will provide networking opportunities and will offer discussion of examples of excellent pedagogic practice that all may learn from.

The event will draw together HE colleagues, including a number of National Teaching Fellows (NTFs), from across a range of institutions and disciplines across the southern region. The event aims to be the first of a number of southern events that hopefully will develop to support and promote excellence in learning and teaching. The event aims to build NTF capacity – to develop a vibrant network of ‘local’ NTFs that can support and work collaboratively with colleagues across the region.
