Meet the Team

The Engaged Learning team can add capacity to your department to help embed more Engaged Learning opportunities into new and current units and programmes: 

Connect Share Inspire Grow

Connect: We have partnerships with a range of organisations in the City, such as Bristol City Council, Bristol Green Capital Partnership, Voscur, BusinessWest, cultural and heritage venues, as well as national and global relationships. We can broker new partnerships for specific projects and promote Engaged Learning opportunities to our existing partner database. We invest our time in nurturing relationships with our community partners to understand their needs, matching them with the needs of our programmes and students.

Share: We work with academics, AQPO and the University Secretary’s Office to develop resources  and streamline processes, making it easier for academics to navigate the quality and insurance processes involved in setting up Engaged Learning projects.

Inspire: We run training for students on professionalism, health & safety and the ethics of working with community groups. We deliver training workshops to support academics and Graduate Teaching Assistants wishing to develop engaged learning opportunities through Academic Staff Development.

Grow: We support the evaluation of Engaged Learning opportunities to share learning across the University and the international HE sector. We develop case studies for dissemination and produce a digest of innovative pedagogy in the sector to support the professional development of University of Bristol academics.
