HEA Engineering Enhancement Event

The Higher Education Academy is holding an Enhancement Event for academics in Higher Education in Cardiff on 2nd July.Ā  There are a number of streams to the day including a New-to-teaching qualitative research methods & a New-to-teaching in laboratory-based subjects.
Engineering is a priority area for the Welsh Government and we feel that it would be appropriate to dedicate a full day workshop/workshops to the discipline as part of the Enhancement Event. Ā Current thinking is that there will be aĀ morning session on Excellence in Engineering Teaching and then look at areas specific to the Welsh agenda in the afternoon, however suggestions are invitedĀ regarding the draft programme. If you feel you would like to contribute to the workshops please contact Karen Fraser (Consultant in Academic Practice, Innovative Pedagogies) at karen.fraser@heacademy.ac.uk to discuss your ideas.
