The Academic Development Centre offers a range of opportunities for continuing professional development for staff who teach or support learning:
The Academic Development Programme is a series of workshops focused on issues in teaching and learning. The Programme offers content for staff at every stage of their career. Workshops cover core concepts in teaching and learning, advanced/innovative teaching techniques, curriculum design, and more.
Is there an element of teaching and learning where you or your colleagues would like more support? Or an area of teaching and learning, higher education or pedagogy you would like to explore further? Or is there an aspect of your own practice you would like to share with colleagues across the university? If so, then please click the link above to get in touch, make a suggestion and discuss your ideas.
Online Workshops - Format and Joining Instructions
For Term 1 (2020/21), ADP workshops will be taking place online rather than face to face; and the format has changed accordingly.
We will be using Microsoft Teams to run the workshops. Please use this link to request to join the ADP Team.
Within the ADP team, there will be a channel for each session, with the workshop name and date in the title. Please check the correct channel for your session. Under the Posts tab, you will find a greeting message and (in most cases) some questions. Under the Files tab, you will find resources to work through before the meeting.
Check the channel at or just before the workshop start time. The facilitator will be monitoring the channel, so feel free to post and introduce yourself, or ask questions. A Meet Now call will be opened at the time the workshop is scheduled to start; please join it.
Note for APP PGR students
Online ADP workshops do count towards your CPD requirement. A register will not be taken; so long as you are present in the main video call for the meeting, your attendance will be recorded.
