About this in-person and online event

Join us for the next Bradford Inaugural Lecture to celebrate Simon Tweddell's promotion to the position of Professor. This is one of the highest achievements in an academic's career; it is a recognition by the University that they are operating at the highest level and recognised as a leader in their chosen field. As such, the promotion is worthy of celebration by both the academic and the University. The inaugural professorial lecture is a centuries-old tradition, marking this key milestone.

During this interactive lecture Simon will take you through his journey of education from his undergraduate days and through his 27-year journey as an educator of pharmacy students, other educators, and of course his own development whilst at the University of Bradford. This journey starts from the days of teacher-centred acetates and overhead projectors (remember them?) through to student-centred pedagogies aimed at engaging and motivating students, promoting deeper approaches to learning, and the use of technology-enhanced learning. 



This will be a ‘hybrid’ event, taking place both at the University and online. When you book your free tickets, you will be able to choose which version of the event you would like to attend.

For those attending in person, the event will be followed by a canape reception, all attendees are invited to attend.
