The Centre for Learning and Teaching works with colleagues across the university and its partner colleges to improve the student learning experience. We offer informal consultancy to individuals and course teams, professional development through courses, seminars and online resources, and run a variety of events and conferences such as the annual Learning & Teaching Conference. We also undertake educational research projects, some externally funded, others internally commissioned by the University, and contribute to the development of institutional and national policy.
You can find more information about each of these areas of activity through the links or by using the search box. Please contact the CLT office (details at bottom of each page) if you would like to discuss any aspect of your teaching.
Sniffing out the story: a workshop exploring how journalistic practice can inform academic writing
Wednesday 28 May 2014 1.00pm – 4.00 pm Room M115, Mayfield House, Falmer
Professional writer and academic, Gilly Smith brings her experience in newspapers, magazines, radio, TV and commercial publishing to show how attention-grabbing headlines, concise stand firsts and a clear narrative drive can inspire us in our academic writing. Using the publishing proposal template that has won her 15 book commissions, she shows how we can use sales points, précis and author profiles to tease the best out of our academic research and put it on the page.
A light lunch (with vegetarian options) will be provided at the start of the workshop
