Academic Excellence Exchange

The Academic Excellence Exchange is a forum led by the Centre for Academic Practice Enhancement (CAPE) providing the opportunity for all colleagues engaged in learning, teaching and research to showcase inspiring, innovative and effective practices.

This year CAPE is driving enhancement of teaching practices through a series of Learning and Teaching Research and Scholarship Grants (details here).The year’s Academic Excellence Exchange programme will therefore be informed by the projects successful through this scheme.

The titles of the eight successful projects are listed below:
  1. Lost luggage
  2. Concepts brought to life: using mobile digital photography to enrich students’ theoretical understanding
  3. SLR tool
  4. Enhancing student engagement through peer mentoring for outbound exchange students at Middlesex
