Transforming Teaching: Catalysing Creativity in the Curriculum

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to the inaugural lecture for the Brunel Academy for Transformation of Teaching - a new intellectual centre for a university-wide community that seeks to transform teaching and provide a focus for colleagues to discuss teaching scholarship and practice as well as contribute to wider conversations on pedagogy.

Our guest speaker, Giskin Day, Principal Teaching Fellow at Imperial College London, will explore how you can bring creativity into your teaching. You will be introduced to creative reflection and ideas for playful twists in the classroom, and to working collaboratively with students in a way that gives them autonomy and ownership of their learning.

We hope you will join us for this first talk in our series of lectures from experts in the field of pedagogy, on Wednesday 21 November, at 6pm in the Eastern Gateway Auditorium, followed by complimentary refreshments and networking.

Best wishes,

Professor Mariann Rand-Weaver & Professor William Spurlin

Co-Convenors of the Academy
