About this event

This one-day event will give colleagues in the sector an opportunity to consider a Scottish approach to delivering excellence in learning and teaching.

The morning will provide a focus on students as co-creators of the curriculum with a keynote address and the opportunity to hear two, from a selection of six, institutional case studies. The afternoon will include two plenary sessions considering practice at Edinburgh Napier (students as colleagues) and the University of Edinburgh (prioritising learning and teaching at a research intensive university). Each plenary session will include the opportunity for discussion and interaction. Further information can be accessed via the event registration page.
