Centre for Academic Innovation
CAI is our main hub for pedagogical research, and supports and disseminates teaching and learning good practice across DMU. It is the home for existing and developing educational initiatives like UDL and provides a base for DMU Teacher Fellows and Advance HE (previously HEA) National Teaching Fellows. It is located in the Eric Wood extension of the Library.
CAI dispenses Academic Innovation Project funds and provides information, advice, and guidance for this and other forms of pedagogical funding and support. It encourages, facilitates, and develops external funding bids for pedagogical innovation and leadership.
CAI hosts the Sandwich Seminar Series, talks on academic and pedagogical innovation with internal and external invited speakers (and sandwiches).
CAI works in tandem with L&OD in terms of staff development and support in academic innovation.
CAI is a work in progress so check back frequently!
