This event will start with an introductory session to starting out in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), followed by presentations on using SoTL to drive change and how to achieve impact and knowledge exchange. The OU will then showcase some of its work covering the topics of learning design for skills development and the role of co-tutoring and there will be time for Q&A with all of the presenters. The day will close with a panel discussion building on conversations from the day and how the partnership between the two institutions can be developed moving forward.
