On Thursday 19 January I am meeting with Association of National Teaching Fellows colleagues to help to plan our symposium, open to NTFS colleagues and friends, on Teaching Excellence: Building Bridges, which takes place on Wednesday 10th May at Leeds Beckett University in the Rosebowl building. It serves to help our community foster excellence beyond ANTF membership. This event will enable NTFs both to showcase the excellent practice that helped us gain our awards in the first place, and to give our non-NTF colleagues opportunities to present alongside us to build evidence of their own innovative practice which could be helpful for future NTF applications. The day will provide participatory workshops, as well as NTF-led keynotes and panels as well as a session for aspiring NTFs, helping colleagues to think through how best to make their own cases for recognition.
We will be calling for submissions for this event in March within three strands:
- Engaging students in building excellent practice in universities;
- Developing creative excellence within and beyond the classroom;
- Energising excellence in employability and skills development.
The delegate rate for this event to include coffee, tea and buffet lunch is again £80.
