The Association of National Teaching Fellows (ANTF) will hold its annual event at the University’s Marylebone campus today and tomorrow.

ANTF chair Professor Lesley-Jane Eales-Reynolds, who is Director of Westminster Exchange, the University’s centre for learning and teaching excellence, will welcome visitors from across the globe to the symposium.

University Deputy Vice-chancellor Professor Rikki Morgan-Tamosunas will join other distinguished speakers to discuss the future of higher education.

Professor Eales-Reynolds said: “This promises to be our most memorable symposium yet and I’m delighted to be able to welcome our distinguished guests and delegates from all over the world here to the University of Westminster.

“This year is very special since we are celebrating 10 years of the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme and the inspiring work of the National Teaching Fellows.

“Unlike previous years, we have invited colleagues who are not NTFs but who are engaging in exciting work in relation to Higher Education to join us to give an added dimension to the proceedings,” she said.

Among high profile UK higher education figures at the symposium will be Sir Bob Burgess, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Leicester and chair of the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service and the Higher Education Academy, and Sir Alan Langlands, chief executive of the Higher Education Funding Council for England.
