Annual IStructE Academics’ Conference

Today I presented at the IStructE annual Academics Conference.  I was talking about the development and thinking behind the Structures 1 course I deliver at Manchester University.  These are my slides  and paper.

Other good speakers included Rhys  Morgan of the RAENG who gave some interesting statistics on student numbers and destinations, broken down by subject, gender and ethnicity.  My former colleague Tim Stratford also spoke about teaching creativity and design at the University of Edinburgh, work that I was involved with the early stages of.  Tim deservedly won the annual IStructE Excellence in Higher Education Prize this year.
