The research includes case studies of best practice.

Taking newly-available pedagogic research and resources as their starting point, our webinars are aimed at those who want to keep up-to-date with new thinking to improve their practice, inform their institutional strategy, and develop policy.

    The webinars are highly collaborative, using Citrix GoToWebinar, which enables attendees to ask questions, make comments and receive regular updates and resources before, during and after the seminar. Book on this event HEA Work
