Education Day 2014: academic transitions
Thursday 27 March 2014
Sir Alexander Fleming Building
South Kensington campus
The theme for Imperial’s Education Day 2014 was academic transitions. The event commenced at 13:45 and after a welcome from Professor Debra Humphris, there was a range of speakers from across College including from the Library, Centre for Academic English, Imperial College Union and the Educational Development Unit. Our external speaker this year was Dr Janet De Wilde, Head of STEM at The Higher Education Academy [HEA] Scotland where one of the current projects is tackling transitions bringing together teaching practitioners from schools, colleges and universities to explore the changing nature of curriculum design, teaching delivery and learning styles within their respective disciplines. The formal talks were followed by a round table session, where there was an opportunity for questions and discussion. The event concluded with a reception.
