Event details

This day of practice exchange is intended to equip course leaders with a better understanding of the requirements of the role and practical and innovative tools for course leadership.

Parallel workshops will use case studies and scenarios, online resources, and a range of activities to explore approaches to academic leadership, course design and enhancement, student support, and professional development.

The conference will be opened by Vice-Chancellor Professor Edward Peck with an overview of relevant developments, and a celebration of course leader contributions to recent institutional successes.

NTSU President Martha Longdon and VP Education Jelena Matic will introduce this year’s keynote speaker.

Entitled “Toothless tiger, hidden linchpin: the shape of course leadership in the UK,” the keynote address will be delivered by Dr Sam Ellis, Senior Lecturer in Academic Development at Glasgow Caledonian University. A former course leader himself, Sam has just finished editing a book on course leadership and will share some insights from his research in this area.

The final session of the day will give course leaders the opportunity to network informally with each other and with workshop presenters.
