About Educational Staff Development

Educational Support and Innovation (ESI) Educational Staff Development section enables current lecturers and other University staff to improve their professional skills via workshops, courses, open days and tailored activities. Our target groups include lecturers, PhD students, student assistants, faculties and departments.

Looking for Online Teaching Support?

Due to the closure of the campus due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Educational Support and Innovation department has put together some resources to get you started with temporarily teaching online. Find quickstart guides to Blackboard Collaborate, as well as instructional videos and webinars (every weekday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.). You can also access the main contact form to get assistance from Nestor Support.
