Briefing and afternoon tea for new course leaders

Published: 24 July 2019 at 11:52

New course leaders are invited to attend an interactive workshop – with afternoon tea – on Monday 2 September from 2-4pm in Cambridge.

Led by Dr Julian Priddle and Dr Linda Brown from Anglia Learning and Teaching, it’s a chance to explore your role ahead of the Course Leaders’ Conference on 3 September.

It will improve your understanding of course leader responsibilities, especially for those new to the role. Attendees will explore the current context, including the implementation of our Education Strategy, personal development tutoring scheme and the Active Curriculum Framework.

Julian highlighted the key role that course leaders play and the importance of making sure they are properly supported:

"The course leader role is becoming ever more important, especially as ARU is taking forward its major programme of curriculum enhancement. Whilst course leaders can access support centrally and in faculties, those new to the role are often unsure about their responsibilities and what resources are available to help them. This workshop is designed specifically to introduce the main areas of the role and signpost guidance and key information."

Previous participants found the workshop 'invaluable for learning about the course design support available at ARU', 'useful for networking with others' in similar roles and 'sharing experiences and best practices'.

Course leaders can book via Business World using the code CLBRIEF1.
