Applied Pedagogies for Higher Education – Real World Learning and Innovation across the Curriculum

BILT’s very own Mohammad Golam Jamil (TESTA Researcher) has co-edited a book which responds to the increased emphasis on applied learning in higher education. Find out more about the book, the process of developing it and where you can access it on our ‘New arrival: Real World Learning book’ blog post.


Contribute ideas for this year’s Bristol Teaching Awards celebration event

Planning has begun for the Bristol Teaching Awards 2021, including how we can best organise an online celebration event to recognise and thank shortlisted staff and announce award winners. We would love to make this online event truly special and celebratory, and we therefore welcome your ideas so we can ensure it is as good, if not better than the face to face event. If you have any ideas or suggestions for optimising this online celebration event please provide your comments below. The BILT Team will be reviewing your feedback as part of the BTA planning process. Many thanks for your contributions.
