A reminder that the call for papers for the University of Hull's Teaching Excellence Academy 2021 Teaching and Learning Conference (Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th July, 2021) is open until Friday March 26th 2021.
During the past 12 months we have seen teaching and learning come to the fore of university life, we have seen staff and students working harder than ever before in their commitment to higher learning, and we have seen radical, fast paced change (often for the better) when needs absolutely must.
Our free international online conference 'Higher Education for the Common Good: Learning from COVID 19' will explore how we can harness learning through adversity to inspire the next generation of global citizens. Submissions are welcomed on the themes of:
1. Hybrid Pedagogies: for example, remote or flipped - blended teaching and learning; addressing the digital divide, physically distant, safe proximate pedagogies, embedding wellbeing in blended teaching;
Submit your proposal by completing this online form by 26 March 2021. We look forward to innovative contributions from across the sector – staff, students and stakeholders.
