LJMU's Annual Teaching and Learning Conference
Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th June 2019
Now in its 18th 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 'Developing Inclusive Learning Cultures', this year's two-day event will showcase the work of academic and professional service staff, and students, across a range of higher education teaching and learning topics related to the theme. The conference's broad theme can be interpreted in many ways but could include – how staff engage in conversations about practice; how we work in partnership with students to seek their feedback, and enhance curriculum; or how we develop our provision to ensure all students can progress and achieve. 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 Faculty of Arts, Professional and Social Studies at the Mount Pleasant Campus (Redmonds Building). Interim Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, Mark Power will open the event.
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.
Submissions must be received by 10am on 4th February 2019.
The submission form can be accessed here.
