Join us for the Teaching and Learning Conference
Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 June 2017
LJMU’s annual Teaching and Learning Conference provides an exciting forum to share and discuss innovative and effective teaching, learning and assessment practices, as well as explore findings from teaching-related research and evaluation. On the theme of ‘Visions for Learning’, this year’s two-day event will showcase the work of academic and professional service staff across a range of higher education teaching and learning topics. These include the use of interactive teaching methods, learning technologies and creative approaches to curriculum, teaching or assessment design.
Organised by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education), Professor Peter Byers, with LJMU’s Teaching and Learning Academy, the Conference will be hosted by the Faculty of Arts, Professional and Social Studies at the Mount Pleasant Campus (Redmonds Building). Vice-Chancellor Professor Nigel Weatherill will open the Conference to our keynote presenter, Nick Hillman, Director of HEPI. We conclude day one with the Vice-Chancellor’s Address. Professor Simon Bates, University of British Columbia, Canada will open day two of the conference.
The Conference programme comprises 66 presentations, from Faculty, Professional Service, partner institution staff as well as sector colleagues. This year, we have two lunchtime networking sessions, one hosted by the cross-institutional Faculty Higher Education Research Groups and one hosted by the Enterprise Educators Academe.
The Conference is open to all LJMU staff, students and collaborative partner institutions. Additionally we warmly invite all colleagues working in post-16 education to attend. The event is free but places are limited and early registration is advisable.
