Title of Conference: Grappling with the scholarship of learning:
students as learning partners

Date: 25th March 2010

Time 9.30 -4.00

Venue: London Resource Centre, Holloway Road, London N7

In the current HE climate with the emphasis on research it is timely to
also raise the profile of teaching as an aspect of university business
which should have equal status with research, especially where quality
teaching could be argued to enhance university activity and prestige
with the CETL funding.  So, in the final year of the Centres for
Excellence in Teaching and Learning this conference will consider the
concept of the 'scholarship of teaching' particularly in relation to
sharing learning with students.

Both MU CETLs have a wide range of experience of working with
professionals as worker/ learners in different work contexts so the
conference will focus upon teaching and learning from the perspective of
both the learner and the teacher, considering themes around negotiated
learning, learning from practice & work and peer assessment.

Keynote Speakers:
Professor Ray Land, University of Strathclyde: the focus of this keynote
will be on exploring enquiry-led teaching scenarios and research -
teaching linkages involving students as co-producers and fellow

Louise Goldring, Student Engagement officer CEEBL CETL Manchester
University: the focus of this keynote will be on offering suggestions
for a range of practical ways students and staff can work in
partnership, including the use of internships.

A range of workshops from projects funded by the Middlesex CETLs
focusing on the above themes will also be offered.
