The HWB Learning Enhancement Team went out and about listening to colleagues across the Faculty about how we could shape the future of what we do.

1. Student Feedback and Analytics

2. Academic integrity

3. Students as Partners

4. Employability, Enterprise and Entrepreneurship

5. Equality and Inclusion

Not to mention the world's first App BINGO game!
