The annual DMU Festival of Teaching takes place in the spring. The Centre for Academic Innovation (CAI) and Library and Learning Services jointly lead the delivery of the project with DMU’s Public Engagement Department as a key partner. Festival events take place across places and spaces on campus and in the city. It is a celebration of learning and teaching, a thank you to the city, and a showcase for the talents and passion of DMU staff as they support learning through their vibrant teaching.

CAI Seminar/Masterclass series

CAI hosts a seminar and masterclass series. The seminar series focuses on providing a space for academics, students and practitioners to engage in deep conversations about a particular topic over a two hour period in deep and critical ways. The masterclasses are spaces for experts to showcase examples of great practice and transfer skills, knowledge and values to other lecturers. Both of these will focus on academic and pedagogic innovation and disruption with internal and externally invited speakers.
