Atlas

Developing teaching, supporting learning

 

 

  

a unique place to exchange ideas and share experience with other scholars...
this forum fills that gap by allowing for open, sincere discussions about our teaching and how to make it better.

 

Atlas is a year-round series of events designed for academic and research staff who are keen to pursue professional development and enhance the impact of their teaching and research.
