The Teaching and Learning Workshop is an optional and informal workshop where students and staff get together and exchange ideas and experiences relating to various study skills - usually focusing on a theme or topic. The workshop is usually held at the beginning of Lent Term in the departmental Common Room and we even throw in lunch! Students usually find it very useful and are encouraged to come along.


The workshop in Lent Term 2015 is yet to be announced - watch this space!
