What new courses do you need? Do you need more e-learning opportunities? Is coaching and mentoring available to all?

We are always looking at ways to improve our learning provision. At the moment we are looking at provision for people in the Professional, Technical and Operational and the Teaching and Learning families.
We recently sent out a short survey. If you are in one of these job families and haven’t already done so would you please complete this survey. Closing date: 01 December 2017.
Your help is much appreciated!

NEW!! Academic Masterclasses

Three new masterclasses for academics (Working with Industry, Science and Social Media, and Techniques for Effective Public Speaking) are being introduced to the LDC calendar in 2017/18 as part of our Development Opportunities for Academics offer. These were developed and piloted last year in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering Research Committee, and are now available to across the College.

New to our academic masterclasses is, Academic Overload: How to Better Balance Your Competing Commitments. This interactive workshop will explore the challenges of academic overload and ways to move beyond it. You will learn practical tools to balance your professional and personal commitments, while enhancing your enjoyment and sense of fulfilment in all areas.

The sessions are all half day in length, and designed to provide direction and practice around key academic-specific communication skills. The sessions are led by experts in the relevant field and generally aimed at early career academics.
