Staff Development 2023

 CTIL’s Digital Academy team will be running a series of staff development workshops to support Schools with objectives linked to NSS action plans and areas for improvement identified in teaching and learning enhancement reports. These workshops will be open to all lecturers and staff in directorates involved in teaching. 


These are bookable (via Eventbrite) in advance, and open to all staff.

Module Makeover

This workshop is designed for lecturers as thoughts turn to the next run of their modules and focuses on learning design and resources. Depending on peer, student and external examiner feedback and often most importantly, your own knowledge of what worked and what didn’t, you may be aiming to do a few small changes, or feel your module needs a total rework.

In the workshop we will explore how you can apply the University’s Curriculum Design Principles and learning design frameworks to help you to develop new activities to engage your students in active learning and to consider other assessment approaches.

You’ll leave the workshop with a plan of action and ideas to support the changes you want to make to the next run of your module.

Runs 14:00 – 16:00 on the 1st Wednesday of each month March – August

Content Creation

The objective of these workshops is to leave lecturers feeling motivated and confident in taking on a new content creation task for a module.

Each session will have a slightly different focus however they will all cover the basics for planning and creating accessible engaging content for your students. Some examples of the types of areas that will be covered cover are:

  • Making engaging visual aids. From PowerPoint to infographics
  • Storyboarding and planning creative projects
  • Capturing audio / producing podcasts
  • Video creation. Planning, shooting and editing

Runs 14:00 – 16:00 on the 3rd Wednesday of each month March – August
