We know it is hard to find time in a very busy schedule (especially this year!) to set aside for some CPD. So we want to help and have created a programme of short, free, and easy to attend CPD. So we welcome ALL Teachers/HE Advisors of all ages to the Discover University Bitesize Teacher CPD sessions. We will be hosting 6 sessions this academic year to give you the opportunity to learn new skills for research-informed teaching and meet leading academics from the University of Exeter. We hope you can relax with a cup of tea and gain some useful insights and tips to apply to the classroom straight away. Each session will also have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss topics in greater detail. Read More
