CPD-Ambassadors symposium as pre-conference at the ECTN Annual meeting and GA 2024, Vienna, Austria

This symposium was meant for all who already obtained their CPD-Ambassador certificate or consider to attend the 4th STEM-CPD Summer School. At this symposium, we discussed the implications of the CPD-Ambassadors’ approach for the quality of teaching and learning in higher education, as well as its impact on professional development in teaching and learning. Several CPD-Ambassadors who participated in our previous STEM-CPD Summer School shared their findings. Following this, three topics that have emerged within the CPD-Ambassadors’ community have been discussed in small groups, and conclusions were drawn collectively. This symposium was organised in a hybrid format. Download Programme
