Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

This year's CPD series will launch shortly. Sessions will begin in mid-October, after the initial rush of semester one has passed.

This year's five strand titles will be: 

  • Blended Learning
  • Skills Development
  • Inclusivity & Internationalisation
  • Curriculum Development
  • Graduate Attributes

Our strand themes reflect the University's strategic learning and teaching priorities, and individual sessions will include topics requested by University of Glasgow staff.

If you have any suggestions for topics you'd like to see covered either this coming year or in the future, contact
