Annual NTF Symposia

Looking forward to ANTF Symposium 2024, looking back on ANTF Symposium 2023

As our 2024 Symposium gets ever closer, we are taking a moment to reflect on the 2023 event.  Exciting pedagogic and scholarship discussions aren’t just shared at our Symposium, we also invite Symposium presenters to summarise their presentation or reflect on their experience of presenting, and share this through our blog

In this post we have collated links to articles on our website related to our 2023 Symposium, and hope these give you a sense of the interesting academic explorations we may embrace as part of #ANTF2024.

Author: Chair of the Committee for the Association of National Teaching Fellows (ANTF), Professor Angela O’Sullivan.

Authors: Sarah Allsop, Juliet Brown, and Santiago Rodriguez from University of Bristol; Dr Iain Wilson, Nottingham Trent University; N. Capel, L. Hancock, C. Howe, G. Jones, T. Phillips, and D.

Community, connectedness, collaboration: Reflections on being authentically ‘WISER’ at the ANTF2023 symposium – Julie Hulme reflected on our first in person annual symposium since the pandemic and shared the take-home message that we are “stronger together”. Author: Deputy Chair of the Committee for the ANTF, Prof Julie Hulme.

Launching the Collaborative Innovation Project Fund (2023-24) – The ANTF Symposium saw the launch of the 2023-24 Collaborative Innovation Projects (CiP) funding scheme and we were delighted to share the details. Authors: Professor Sam Elkington & Haleh Moravej.
