Blackboard Upgrade:


The team are currently undertaking work to upgrade Blackboard, the University VLE. The upgrade will be taking place from Saturday 8th July for the period of one week up to the 14th July. During this period the current version of Blackboard will remain available in a read-only format. Any changes made to the site after the 8th July will not be carried over to the new version of Blackboard when it launches on the 14th July.

We are pleased to announce our upcoming CPD workshops for the start of the 2017/18 academic year. These sessions will be running in August and September and will this year be themed around key aspects of teaching and learning and aligned to the HEA framework.
