Festival of Teaching: the Challenge of Change

Our annual celebration of creative teaching at De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) will take place between Monday 15 and Thursday 25 March 2021. This year our theme is the challenge of change. De Montfort University has a proud history of providing teaching that allows our graduates to go on and make a difference to the region and to the world. During the Covid-19 pandemic, staff and students have drawn from their resilience, their experience, expertise and studies to confront the challenges that have faced us from the digital and political, from the climate emergency to human rights and beyond. This challenge of change will focus on that endeavour and explore the journey we have taken and in forging new paths ahead.

This interactive digital experience follows a Victorian lady's journey from De Montfort University's campus to the Leicester Museum and Art Gallery. Share in her discoveries, learn about our historical city through its landmarks and buildings whilst collecting evidence to complete an activity book and solve a crime. With something for all age groups, this magical journey will inform and inspire whilst inviting participants to follow this virtual route in person at a later date.
