FW: Call for contributions - Active Learning Conference 11 & 12 September


On the afternoon of 11 September we’re offering pre-conference Master Classes in: SCALE-UP (Student-Centred Active Learning Environment with Upside-down Pedagogies), Team-based learning (TBL) and TEAL (Technology-Enhanced Active Learning).

The main conference will be opened on 12 September by Professor Mike Sharples, Chair in Educational Technology Learning and Teaching Innovation, Open University, whose keynote address will focus on ‘Designs for Active Learning’. 

The conference will link Team-Based Learning at University of Bradford, SCALE-UP at Nottingham Trent University and Anglia Ruskin University’s active learning practices as part of a HEFCE Catalyst funded project to address barriers to student success, hence the main conference is free to delegates from HEFCE funded institutions, while there is a modest £100 fee for those from other institutions.

Conference aims:

·         introduce active learning approaches through master classes;

·         share good practice in using and embedding active learning approaches in the curriculum;

·         provide opportunities to learn new skills and techniques.

·         innovative teaching methods

·         engaging students in collaborative learning

·         improving retention and progression
