Organisational Development and Professional Learning


SDDU supports individual schools and faculties

The Masterclass events have replaced the Talking about Teaching series, and are co-organised by the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE) and Organisational Development and Professional Learning (OD&PL, formerly SDDU). They are led by nationally recognised speakers and are designed to provide new ideas and discussion about a range of aspects of learning and teaching.

For further details, and to attend an event, please contact Rekha Parmar on

We are looking forward to hosting more Masterclass events and welcome any suggestions.  Therefore if you have seen an inspiring speaker at a conference and you think they would add value to the Masterclass programme, please contact Kate Exley in OD&PL on

The next event taking place is Building Digital Platforms to Support the Work Placement Journey led by Rebecca Evans (Work Placement Manager) and Greg Miller (Head of Placements), 20 June 2017, 12:00-14:00.
