University participants complete the programme

"This represents a huge undertaking for each of the participants: involving attendance at four development days in Edinburgh; taking an active role in an action learning set; engaging in a wide range of preparatory and follow-up learning activities and establishing a relationship with a mentor from within the university.  Their ability to find the time, resources and determination to create the space to engage in learning is admirable. They have emerged from the programme smiling and full of inspiration." Ann Tilbury, LTA

Presentation at International Women's Day 2019

Their first opportunity to share their experiences was to present at the University’s second International Women’s Day celebrations on Friday 8 March 2019.  The short film captures their expectations; reflections and initial thoughts on the impact of the programme for their practice.   As well as sharing the video, three of the Aurorans, Rosemary McCormack, Nicola Smith and Raeanne Miller facilitated a reflective activity around mapping personal and institutional values.
