Past Teaching Institute Feedback

"I got a wealth of information on how to look at pedagogy and delivery of key concepts. A chance to reflect on assessment and approach my redesign [of my course] with some new criteria."

"I value the talent and strength of the colleagues who presented here and the resource of the CTL and university for supporting such a magnificent opportunity."
