We have a lively programme lined up with time set aside for you to share your own good practice and pick up some great ideas from colleagues. We hope that you will be able to join us for the afternoon.
The event will take place in Fulton and the afternoon will begin with a sandwich lunch and the presentation of the Sussex Teaching Awards 2012 before moving into the lecture theatre where Professor Clare Mackie (Deputy Vice Chancellor) will discuss the National Student Survey (NSS) results.
Last year’s conference heard from some current students and this year we welcome some recent graduates who will speak about their transition from university. Linda Buckham (Director, Careers and Employability Centre) will then explore what we do well in terms of preparing students for that transition and how we can improve employability.
An ‘open-mic’ session will give everyone the opportunity to share the innovations in teaching and learning that were commended in last year’s Periodic Review.
After a break for tea and cakes delegates will hear from four departments that scored highly in the NSS. Representatives from Law, Physics & Astronomy, Electronic Engineering and History will share their NSS stories around teaching, personal development, assessment and feedback.
The afternoon will end with Professor Mackie talking about the next steps and setting priorities for this year.
