Following the introduction of the Teaching Excellence Framework in 2017, UK Universities are required to demonstrate a culture of continuous improvement in the quality of learning, teaching and student experience that students receive.
The University aims to achieve this by delivering an educational experience within a research informed, supportive and engaging academic environment that adds value to learning. Such added value will ultimately provide students with opportunities to develop both personal and professional skills and attributes, enhance their career prospects, and prepare them for active participation in society as responsible and ethical global citizens.
The learning and teaching workshop (8th – 9th March) will be hosted by Newcastle University Business School but is open to colleagues from any discipline within business, management or social science. It follows on from programme development week and feeds into the learning and teaching enhancement agenda by providing an insight into the connected curriculum (as developed at UCL), providing a global perspective on intercultural objectives and linking to the PRIME (Principles for Responsible Management Education). In addition, as representatives of the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (NELEP) will be in attendance, the workshop will facilitate engagement with local employers and the employability agenda and provide those working in higher education with valuable insights into the practical needs of employers and how to connect these with student expectations.
