The HEA and Universities UK will lead a one-day national conference focusing on excellence and innovation in teaching and learning, 4 May 2016.
The conference, at Woburn House London, will address current and up-and-coming challenges, all in the context of the ever changing landscape and architecture instigated by the government's Green Paper. The conference agenda, which is particularly suitable for PVCs and others with leadership roles in learning and teaching, will include:
- how universities can deliver excellence in teaching and foster a culture of innovation,
- developing an institutional approach to student engagement in curriculum design
- best methods and strategies to share innovative practice
- innovation benefiting all areas of learning and teaching provision
- developing an effective institutional approach to employability
- new approaches or initiatives that enhance learning and teaching
Innovation and excellence in teaching and learning is at the very core of any university’s success. Universities UK and the HEA have come together to provide the sector with a unique opportunity to hear from experts and thought leaders in the sector and share best practice with fellow teaching and learning specialists.
Delegates will discuss pedagogical innovation and innovation in curriculum design, all with the focus of delivering excellence. The day also seeks to present insights on what is next for teaching and learning.
