My highlights from BLTC 2018

On 14 June 2018 we had our annual Brookes Learning and Teaching Conference. As usual, it was tricky to choose from the parallel sessions in the various strands (discipline, students, staff, and environment). I tried to create a mixture for myself,…

23 Things – Thing 3

Thing 3 I must admit I was a little nervous about Googling myself. I previously thought I didn’t have that … More

Thing 14 Audio – Podcasts
