Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

These sessions are aligned the University’s forthcoming strategic priorities.

They will be led by staff with broad pedagogical expertise, as well as staff with experience of successfully applying learning designs and developing practice in their subject areas.

All sessions will take place on Zoom (unless otherwise mentioned). Where possible and appropriate, recordings will be made available here on the CPD page afterwards.

Sessions are open to all University of Glasgow staff, including GTAs.
