Today was the Centre of Higher Education & Research Practice (CHERP) ‘Festival of Innovative Practice’ held at (the very sunny) University of Ulster, Magee campus. The day was rammed full of colleagues showcasing their practices and research and the keynote address by Professor David Nicol, Visiting Professor to CHEP, was particularly inspiring. The latter half of the morning was filled with ‘Pecha Kucha’ style presentations from those who had received CHERP Development Funding and/or Higher Education Academy Individual Development Awards in this academic year – the research speed dating begins!

Since I have received both HEA and CHEP funding (see it was an intense session, making two presentations, but the feedback was really supportive from colleagues and a few new ideas for future collaborations born!
