Starting next week, our lively and thought-provoking Festival of Teaching programme will showcase a wide variety of our innovative teaching, with our lecturers sharing their expertise and passion, discussing ideas, science, culture, and approaches to learning which affect us all. This year will be the fifth time we’re holding the festival and we’re happy to be returning to some in-person events alongside some online sessions.
Throughout the festival, we hope that you will find an event that intrigues you, an event where you can have fun and enjoy learning something new and celebrate the great teachers and learning DMU has to offer.
Director of Centre for Academic Innovation and Professor of Teaching and Learning, Momodou Sallah said: “This annual festival showcases the variety of our exciting and innovative teaching with resonance and application to our daily lives.
“It is also an opportunity, in line with our new Empowering University Strategy, to engage new audiences from a range of communities in the art of teaching and learning and share stories and ideas to motivate and inspire.”
When does it begin?
The festival takes place from Monday 14 to Friday 18 March – highlights include:
On Tuesday 15 March, we’ll be celebrating World Social Work Day with a conference, Transcending Otherness: Disturbing Othering. There will be a host of speakers from people within the industry.
On Wednesday 16 March, we’ll be offering people the chance to build resilience and practical skills through creative arts, media and logical pathways that will help boost wellbeing and development.
And on Thursday 17 March, join Face your Footprint!: A taste of Carbon Literacy, an interactive and accessible workshop will provide a short taster of Carbon Literacy Training, through an engaging mixture of discussion, quizzes and short presentations.
The full programme is on DMU’s website, where you can also book your free place on any of the events (and is open to all staff, students and the public).
We look forward to seeing you there!
