The LIU offers a range of workshops and seminars relating to teaching and learning. A full list of workshops scheduled for the 2010/11 academic year is available at www.dcu.ie/ovpli/liu/Events/index.shtml.
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.
