ISSOTL10 -- Global theories and local practices: institutional, disciplinary and cultural variations
(19-22 October 2010, Liverpool, UK)
You are invited to join the 7th annual conference of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Liverpool, UK,19 – 22 October 2010. This multidisciplinary, international community of scholars will convene to share evidence-based insights and theoretical frameworks that enhance our understanding of student learning and guide our teaching practices. Incorporated into this year's conference is the 18th Improving Student Learning Symposium, an established annual event on the International calendar organized by the Oxford Centre for Staff and Learning Development, Oxford Brookes University. The major aim of the Improving Student Learning Symposia is to provide a forum, which brings together those who are primarily researchers into learning in higher education and those that are primarily practitioners concerned more pragmatically with improving their practice.
The conference will be held in the heart of Liverpool on the historic, world heritage waterfront, at the BT Convention Centre, Monarchs Quay, Liverpool UK which sits alongside the Grade 1 listed Albert Dock complex on the eastern bank of the river Mersey. The conference will feature workshops facilitated by leading scholars in the field, distinguished international plenary speakers, panel presentations, individual paper and poster presentations, and roundtable discussions. Please join us!
The conference website for ISSOTL10 is now available, as is the Call for Proposals. Go directly to http://issotl10.indiana.edu/, or you can always get there through the "Conferences" page on the ISSOTL website, www.issotl.org. Note that submissions will be accepted from January 15 to March 1.
