Engage in an effective mentoring relationship over 2024

The mentoring process can provide support, challenge and stimulation for your work, leading to fundamental shifts in personal skills and self-awareness.

Listen to The LD Project Podcast

The LD Project Podcast has been created to explore key ideas that underpin our practice, to open up new conversations in this exciting field and to foster community and scholarly collaboration. In each episode, we talk to the authors of paper publications that have shaped learning development and that govern our thinking about teaching and learning. We hope that by hearing about the great work that happens in our community, will inspire others to learn from each other, to listen better and to write more.
