    March 2015 -- Translating Theory into Practice

    The Event

    The Faculty of Arts Teaching and Learning Showcase will celebrate our continued commitment to delivering an excellent standard of research-led, innovative teaching. Colleagues from across the faculty are invited to participate in the TLS. Your contribution can take the form of

    a poster
    a short film
    a performance
    a demonstration
    a spoken presentation
    any other creative format

    The chosen theme, "Translating Theory into Practice", offers opportunities for considering the various ways in which we bring our research into the teaching space. We are keen to have representation from colleagues who deliver teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We welcome presentations from colleagues who work collaboratively within the faculty and who utilise the extensive support network offered by the Library, IATL, Digital Humanities.
