LJMU’s Annual Teaching and Learning Conference
Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 June 2016
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. On the theme of ‘Supporting transition: exploring pathways for success’, 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 teaching 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, Professor Sally Kift, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), James Cook University, Australia, who will provide a holistic perspective of successful student transitions. We conclude day one with a presentation on ‘learning gain’ by Professor Stuart Brand, Director of Learning Experience, Birmingham City University. Professor Ellen Hazelkorn, Policy Advisor to the Higher Education Authority (Ireland) and Director of the Higher Education Policy Research Unit (HEPRU), will open Day Two on the international debate about learning outcomes and metrics.
The Conference programme comprises 75 presentations, from Faculty, Professional Service, partner institution staff as well as sector colleagues. This year, we’ve created 14 additional demonstration or consultancy sessions, in order to provide further opportunities to discuss ideas or to examine solutions to apply in teaching. Another new development is the scheduling of four lunchtime networking sessions aimed at sustaining debate around pedagogic research during and after the Conference. In addition to academic poster sessions colleagues from our Professional Support Services will be on hand to offer further advice and guidance on supporting successful transition.
Finally, why not take part in our photographic competition and the chance to win £50 in Amazon vouchers? Entrants must be registered and present at the Conference, the prize will be awarded at the end of Day Two. Please see the attached document for more information.
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.
