Programme information

The Academic Staff Development Programme (ASDP) is a series of focused, bite-sized workshops designed to equip, support and develop members of academic staff and research staff who teach. Workshops fall under 3 themes (Teaching, Service and Research). They are offered once per semester each academic year, and draws upon the knowledge, experience and expertise of staff from a variety of schools/units across the University.
