Are you looking for inspiration in your teaching and would like the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others? At EDLAB our goal is to provide you with various opportunities to develop new knowledge and skills relevant to your education, in collaboration with other UM teaching staff.
Our new CPD catalogue is currently under development ready for the official launch in September 2019. In the meantime we are piloting some new activities which are free for you to take part in so long as you are willing to provide us with some feedback on your experiences. This feedback will be invaluable in the development of our future programme. Below is a list of some activities under development. Those currently available to you have a registration link under them, which you can use to find the schedule and other details. Please note that if fewer than six participants sign up to any given event, we may be required to postpone.
If you have ideas for other training opportunities you would like to see in the future, please let us know by emailing email@example.com
Education that Moves You
25 Feb and 11 March 09:00-10:45
Our Education That Moves You initiative aims to turn the classroom into a more dynamic space to improve the student learning experience during tutorials. Standing tutorials can create a more active and lively environment and be a healthier way to experience education. Every UM faculty has its own standing tutorial room and we are here to offer advice on how best to use this kind of space in your teaching and also offer workshops on this topic.

Fostering students’ employability, wellbeing and resilience
27 March 13:30-15:30

In this interactive workshop you will discuss various cases and find out more about possible support and services available to help both you and your students.
Blended learning course design and activating teaching methods
9 April 15.00-17.00
What exactly is Blended Learning and what does it offer you and your students? How can it be incorporated into our PBL education? And how can you go about designing a course using blended methods?
This session will answer these questions, delving into this somewhat ambiguous concept and making it clearer how you can incorporate blended methods into your teaching activities.
