The TLC are an exciting informal cross-institutional collaboration to provide joint CPD opportunities for everybody teaching and/or supporting learning in Higher Education.
Their aim is to bring together colleagues from different disciplines, institutions and countries. TLCs are also open to students in HE and they are very interested in including students’ contributions to the programme. Together, they will discuss and debate a variety of current teaching and learning topics in a series of monthly webinars which will be a great opportunity to reflect on your practice but also share good practice and find out what is happening beyond your own institutional walls in the more global HE landscape.
