Festival of Teaching, 16-27 April 2018

Join us for a celebration of creative teaching at De Montfort University Leicester (DMU). Our lively and thought-provoking programme is free and open to all, taking place in venues both on campus and across the city for 10 days in April.

Festival of Teaching

DMU ranked Gold in the Government-endorsed 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and offers outstanding learning and teaching across a wide variety of subjects. From screenwriting to footwear design, from dance to the science of climate change, our lecturers bring expertise and passion, and we’re proud to showcase their talents. 

I’m sure you will find an event that intrigues you, and a topic that interests you.
