REshaping Teaching Excellence: Pandemic and the New Now 


The International Federation of National Teaching Fellows (IFNTF) is pleased to host a virtual "symposathon" (Symposium + Marathon) in September 2022.  


IFNTF ( is a non-for-profit organization that aims to bring together award-winning teachers from across the world for the global advancement of excellence in learning and teaching in higher education. The federation was officially launched at the House of Lords in London, UK, in September 2016, and currently has members from Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, UK and the USA, and all members aim to work in collaboration on innovative projects and initiatives on teaching and learning pedagogies in higher education.  


This is the fourth annual international summit/symposium held by IFNTF. The IFNTF First World Summit in 2017 in Birmingham, UK, featured the theme Defining Teaching Excellence across Disciplines. The IFNTF Second World Summit in Halifax, Canada, in 2018, was themed Nurturing Teaching Excellence across Disciplines. The IFNTF 2021 Symposium held in conjunction with the Canadian STLHE conference featured Shaping Teaching Excellence across Disciplines.  


This year the symposathon will be themed REshaping Teaching Excellence: Pandemic and the New Now. The IFNTF symposathon will feature keynote speakers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the USA, presentations from authors of accepted papers, and participant-led breakout sessions and panel discussions. The broad focus will be on maintaining a culture of teaching excellence in the pandemic and post-pandemic era, high-impact pedagogies, student engagement strategies, impactful teaching, and case studies. 



In its true spirit as an international federation, the symposathon will run in multiple time zones that will be convenient for participants from both the Northern and the Southern hemispheres. Each time zone will host the symposathon in a 3-hour time slot. There will be an additional one-hour "handover" slot during which participants from the previous time zone may find it convenient to attend the first hour session from the next time zone. Please see the timings of the symposathon below.

Fwd: Invitation: Inclusive Curriculum Consultants seminar


We are excited to announce the second seminar of this spring's series with Tamara Reid who will talk to us about Inclusive Curriculum Consultants: Lessons learned from student-staff partnerships in curriculum development, design, and review on Friday the 25th of February from 1-2 pm.  


To register for the event: 


The Inclusive Curriculum Consultant Programme allows students to be involved in the development of curricula, share their voices and perspectives.  Staff working in partnerships with the programme have the opportunity to work with and learn from a diverse student perspective leading to the review of teaching materials, and discussions of how a particular module or course can be redesigned and changed to be more inclusive and accessible to our diverse student body. 

In this talk, I will bring you on my journey of redesigning the programme and discussing my lessons learned and critical reflection from the last year of running the Inclusive Curriculum Consultants. Looking at issues of allyship, learned helplessness, evaluation, and partnership as empowerment.  

It is my hope that this talk provides you with some food for thought in relation to your own programmes. As well as providing us an opportunity to be discussing our journeys of becoming in student-staff partnerships. 

Tamara Reid, Inclusive Curriculum Consultants Programme Lead at Kingston University, will be joined by respondents Elantha Evans, Senior Lecturer in Architecture and Cities and Students as Co-Creators Academic Partner, University of Westminster, and Kyra Araneta, Student Partnership Research Assistant and Master's in International Relations Student, University of Westminster. 

We wish you a lovely day and look forward to hosting you on the 25th. 

Warm wishes,
