Conversations in the Consortium

Seminar series which runs across the three partner institutions which provides a forum for faculty to share experiences, ideas, useful practices and tools relating teaching and learning. These sessions are open to all faculty across the Shannon Consortium and are semi-formal in format allowing for lots of discussion and conversation.

National Forum Seminars

The aim of the National Seminar Series is to provide all working in higher education with opportunities to connect with colleagues and to focus on shared interests in both the research and practice of teaching and learning enhancement. The series also creates opportunities to hear from national and international experts in different areas of teaching and learning. The seminars are funded through a competitive application process to ensure that they meet the needs of higher education, are of interest to the host and other institutions and that they encourage debate on the themes.
