This community of practice is for Learning Developers supporting engineering and physical sciences and/or work-based learners. It is led by Dr Nicola Allett, Aston University Birmingham. It aims to enable members to share ideas and approaches, and support each other to develop our practice supporting these learners. It also aims to contribute to the wider HE sector through the sharing of our knowledge and expertise.
