The Trent Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) is committed to supporting interesting and interactive events which share practice across both the internal and external learning community. 

If you have an idea for an event that TILT could support, please email our TILT Coordinator. 

Upcoming events:

BALEAP PIM – Intercultural Communication and EAP

TILT and Nottingham Trent University are looking forward to welcoming you to a PIM on Intercultural Communication and EAP on Saturday 18th November 2017. 

In today’s globalised yet increasingly polarised world, communication skills, cultural knowledge, cultural sensitivity and open-mindedness towards others would seem to be more important than ever. 

The task of helping all students develop this core intercultural competence is surely one to be shared by all educators, but as EAP teachers we are perhaps better placed than many to address it, to increase awareness of its importance and share our best practice with colleagues in other disciplines.

 

Grow Your Skills in Teaching Academic Writing

Grow Your Skills in Academic Writing is a one day course which explores practical approaches to developing the academic writing skills of your students. It is appropriate for staff at any stage in their career and anyone looking to develop best practice by sharing ideas with peers from other institutions and disciplines.

 

Designing for Flexibility: Exploring developments in “hybrid” (blended) learning at NTU

CADQ and TILT are looking forward to welcoming you to this half day conference to showcase the development of flexible courses and online resources at NTU, highlighting the value of such approaches and what is involved in creating and delivering them. It will reflect emerging delivery modes at the university, including in Workforce Development, Degree Apprenticeships and blended programmes, which combine campus-based and online learning elements.

The conference will be of interest to those developing (or planning to develop) blended and distance programmes, but will also be relevant to colleagues looking to increase the variety, flexibility and personalisation of their courses, through the use of online activities and digital resources.

There will be opportunities to discuss ideas and experiences with colleagues from across the university and find out about newly available Elearning Production services, which have been put in place to support the development of online courses and learning resources.
