NEF Masterclasses: CPD Opportunity
The next masterclass that NEF: The Innovation Institute will be running is a Welding and Fabrication Masterclass being held at The Welding Institute (TWI) with the Association of Welding, Fabrication Training and Education (AWFTE) on 19 April 2013. This masterclass has proven to be very popular and is now fully- booked.
In addition, we have a number of other Masterclasses being run over the next few months that are equally as exciting.
- Innovative Teaching of Product design, Bournemouth University – 26 June 2013. Hosted by the School of Design and Engineering of Bournemouth University,www.bournemouth.ac.uk/about/design.html, this Masterclass will focus on product development, current practice in industry, and innovation in the teaching and learning of product development. This event is timed to coincide with the University’s Festival of Design & Innovation: a showcase of student work during their time at the university and during placements with employers. The event attracts over 1500 visitors including talent scouts from the BBC's Dragons' Den and international companies such as Dyson. More than 170 designs and prototypes from the University’s range of design and creative technology courses will be on display. Delegates will see state-of-the-art industry standard facilities, at a design centre featuring modern manufacturing and technical workshops, a specialist CAD laboratory, as well as the latest rapid prototyping equipment. There will be sessions demonstrating innovative approaches to design from university and industry experts on new technologies for prototyping for sustainability.
- Innovation in Agricultural Technology, NIAB’s Innovation Farm,www.innovationfarm.co.uk, Cambridge - 10 July 2013. This Masterclass will look at innovation in the key sector of bio-sciences and the impact on the future requirements for training and development in this area, including how FE Colleges can ensure their provision addresses the needs arising from new techniques in agriculture, in particular plant genetics and crop improvement. The event will showcase the new NIAB facilities including the new BREEAM Outstanding Reception Centre, which features a modern and progressive design required to achieve the highest sustainability rating and zero-carbon balance in operation, constructed using locally sourced and sustainable materials wherever possible. The facilities include extensive field and glasshouse exhibits to demonstrate innovations in crop plants and in cultural practices in the agri-business sector to address the issues of climate change, food security, reduced resources and healthy nutrition.
