We’re looking forward to this year’s Learning and Teaching Conference which is just under a month away, 7-9th September 2020.
As you may have read, this year’s Conference will be taking place online via Teams so you can join us for as much or as little of the conference as you wish.
We’re grateful to have a number of external speakers this year. Our keynote, Professor Ale Armellini, will be talking about embedding active blended learning into all courses at the University of Northampton. You can read more about this project on the University of Northampton’s webpage.
In addition to Professor Armellini, we also have Dr Kate Lister from the Open University who will be talking about embedding wellbeing into the curriculum. In addition to her presentation, Kate will also be offering a drop-in session where colleagues can ask specific questions about the wellbeing strategy.
Finally, Gillian Fielding from Blackboard will be joining us to offer examples of tools that can be used to engage students in online learning.
As well as our external speakers, we’ve also got some great presentations and discussions lined up from colleagues across the University, with great practical tips and case studies.
We’ve got sessions on the following topics:
- Teaching practical classes and subjects online
- Virtual labs
- Embedding employability into the curriculum
- Making online seminars interactive
- Peer assisted learning
- Predicting academic achievement
- In class polling
- Video assessments
And much more…
Hope to see you there.
