The School of Nursing, Midwifery, Social Work and Social Sciences has established the Academy of Creative Educators (ACE) in response to the recognised value of moving towards more creative educational pedagogies and assessments for education.
ACE provides an innovative community supporting all academics in the School to deliver excellence in teaching through a creative pedagogical approach which
The activities of ACE are determined by the ACE Steering Group. The group comprises representatives from all Directorates within the School as well as university and student representation.
The group have already begun to consider ways in which investment in embedding creative ways of offering education can improve outcomes and also have a positive impact on resources such as accommodation and staff time. Members are also exploring how educational experiences can be enhanced with use of technology, increased digital awareness and skills and other creative ways of encouraging learning.
All staff in the School are encouraged to join in with ACE activities according to your interests and professional development plans. You are also welcome to join the ACE Steering Group or feed in your ideas for what the group should provide to help your development as an educator.
