Save the date

The days may be getting colder and Christmas may be approaching, but our thoughts are with the Spring and next year’s CoLRiC events! The 2017 events will focus on two themes: digital literacy and preparing for Ofsted (and QAA). As ever, they are a great opportunity to network and share best practice. So, save these dates: Friday 19th May (London) and Friday 16th June (Huddersfield). Details.
