Learning and Teaching Journal Club: Conversation with Cake

The Journal Club is an informal opportunity for you to chat with colleagues about topical learning and teaching issues over coffee/cake/lunch. No expertise in education literature is required, just an interest in learning and teaching at the University!

We provide the drinks and cake and you attend - all are welcome. Please bring your own mug, lunch and some conversational thoughts on the topic! All club meetings last for approximately 1 hour.

We would appreciate you confirming your attendance by emailing the Academic Staff Development Team.

Why not email us with a future topic for conversation or visit our wiki to add your thoughts on discussions or to access links to any useful materials on topics.
