With regret, we have decided that the LJMU Teaching and Learning Conference will no longer take place on 11 and 12 June 2020. This is a response to the unprecedented public health situation.
We are looking at alternatives, so will keep you informed.
Now in its 19th year, LJMU’s annual Teaching and Learning Conference is a 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 ‘Closing the Gap’, this year’s event will share the work of academic and professional services staff, and students, across a range of related higher education teaching and learning topics. With a focus on addressing the barriers to students’ success, the event will showcase initiatives and interventions from across the University designed to tackle inequalities and disparities in student success. We are interested in sessions that include the use of interactive teaching methods, learning technologies and creative approaches to curriculum, inclusive teaching and 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 Faculties of Engineering and Technology and Science at the City Centre Campus (Byrom Street).
The Conference is open to all LJMU staff, students and LJMU’s partner institutions. Additionally, we warmly invite all colleagues working in post-16 education to attend this event, for which there is no charge, although places for external visitors, excluding LJMU partner institutions, are limited.
