Enterprise and Innovation in the Curriculum Forum – 20th May 2013

An academic discussion group

Monday 20th May 2013; Glamorgan Building 0.85

Academic members of staff are actively encouraged to attend the second forum of its kind to share practice in the area of enterprise and innovation in the curriculum.  An outline of the agenda is detailed below, but will include research/policy drivers, feedback from a related Russell Group forum and a case example from the School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences.

It is recognised that colleagues from across the University are advancing the agenda of applying student learning so that graduates become innovative critical thinkers who are able to solve problems and make real decisions.  During February 2013 a meeting for academics with an interest in enterprise and innovation in the curriculum was hosted by Cardiff University Enterprise.  During the meeting a consensus was reached to establish an informal peer to peer networking group to share and build on practice.  The aim is to bring together academics from a diverse range of disciplines to exchange knowledge, collaborate and explore new opportunities that can be advanced through enterprise education.  It is hoped that the active participants from the first session will again be able to attend, with the addition of new staff members, particularly early career academics and those with a teaching and learning portfolio.
