Talking Teaching across the Globe

This popular webinar series brings together Oxford Brookes staff (and invited colleagues from across the sector) to discuss and explore inspirational practice in teaching and learning. The series provides an opportunity to keep abreast of developments in the way we create effective student learning environments. Each webinar or workshop offers the opportunity to share practice, ask questions and consider ways to enhance your academic practice.

Throughout the 2022/23 academic year, we will focus on educational leadership:

We started the year with a focus on the way institutions, programme teams and individual programme leaders could bring Lawrence, Morón-García and Senior’s ‘Manifesto for sustainable programme leadership’ (2022) to life within their institutional contexts and, in so doing, establish programme leadership as ‘central to a contemporary academic career’ (Lawrence, Morón-García and Senior, 2022).

You can access presentations by following links at the bottom of this page.

We will continue to offer perspectives on this in the New Year and then continue by looking at the way educational leadership can be effectively practiced and supported in contemporary HE.

We welcome contributions from external and internal colleagues, so get in touch via if you are interested in contributing.

Academic agency, power and transformation: programme leaders making positive change

Friday 26 May 2023, 13.00 - 13.50

  • Dr Jenny Lawrence, PFHEA. NTF, Oxford Brookes University
  • Prof Letizia Gramaglia, PFHEA, NTF, Warwick University
  • Dr Marios Hadjianastasis SFHEA, University of Birmingham
  • Professor Martha Caddell, Heriot Watt University
  • Dr Christine Haddow SFHEA, Edinburgh Napier University
  • Dr Kimberly Davies, SFHEA, University of Glasgow

In this panel a group of colleagues, from different institutions, who have worked with programme leaders across the UK and those that support programme leaders across the globe will discuss the professional challenges and personal rewards of this important role. We will explore how programme leaders might use their experience to shape the institutional structures they work in, and consider the evidence outlining how this important role can be brought into the light so it might be fully recognised and rewarded in our institutions and across the sector (Caddell, Ellis, Haddow, Wilder-Davis, 2022). 

An extended abstract and further details about the panel members is available here.
