Professor Sue Rigby spoke of her long standing experience of working in different universities and leading educational change in a range of different ways.

At a time of exceptionally rapid change in the university sector, innovation, excellence, enhancement and development of teaching and learning are under discussion almost daily. Especially in a research intensive environment engaging cross institutional enhancement can be challenging and yet there is so much to gain for both students and staff. This presentation explored; what approaches are effective when aiming for more than individual excellence in the classroom, how cross-institutional change can take place and what can we learnt from other institutions in terms of innovation and excellence in learning and teaching?"
