Arena Open

UCL Arena Open is a welcoming and flexible programme of events and opportunities which focus on advancing research-based education at UCL. The scheme is accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA), which means that UCL can confer awards relating to teaching and leading in higher education upon its own staff.

No matter what your job title, if you teach or support students’ learning at UCL, or if you lead on an area of education, (for example, as a programme coordinator, departmental tutor or team leader), you’re welcome to come along and participate when you choose.

You’re also invited to offer to create and lead sessions or other activities for UCL colleagues with a view to sharing good practice or innovations. Sessions cover a wide variety of topics relating to teaching and research supervision. They draw on and celebrate creative approaches to education across the whole breadth of subject areas and professional specialisms at UCL.
