Our lunchtime seminars are held on Wednesdays from 1-2pm. The aim of these seminars is to encourage the cross-fertilisation of ideas between  schools and disciplines and to generate debate on subjects of campus  wide interest relating to teaching and learning. The seminar format  consists of a presentation followed by questions and general discussion.  The atmosphere is relaxed and lunch is provided.
