The University Alliance runs formal academic networks in three key areas: Research and Innovation (R&I), Teaching and Learning (T&L) and Knowledge Exchange and Enterprise (KEE). These networks deliver tangible benefits to our members through brokering powerful connections and delivering solutions and outcomes.
Teaching and Learning
The T&L Network enables expert practitioners to come together to share best practice and innovate in the teaching and learning space. Recent external speakers at T&L network meetings include representatives from the Department for Education and TASO (Transforming Access to Student Outcomes in Higher Education).
Research and Innovation
The R&I Network facilitates the opportunity for senior researchers across the membership to engage proactively on identifying future cutting-edge research opportunities and ideas, and engagement with key research funding bodies. External speakers at recent network meetings include EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) and CaSE (the Campaign for Science and Engineering).
Knowledge Exchange and Enterprise
The KEE Network brings senior knowledge exchange and enterprise professionals from the membership together with external partners and business to drive positive knowledge exchange and learning around the Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF) as well as fostering other benefits and links with enterprise and business. Recent speakers include Research England who provided network members with a unique insight into recent developments with the Knowledge Exchange Framework.
