Project Teams

The project works with a number of teams from different departments. Each team is based around a particular unit or units and comprises (at a minimum):
  • The Unit Convenor(s),
  • Director of Studies,
  • Two students.
Teams will be brought together for an introductory event (December 2013) and part-way through the project (April 2014) to share experiences. In between these joint events, teams will be supported on a 1-2-1 basis by the project manager, Dr Helen King, in the Learning & Teaching Enhancement Office.

The project is delighted to be working with the following departments in 2012/13:
Biology & Biochemistry
Politics, Languages & International Studies
Social & Policy Sciences
