Come along to our Teaching & Learning Conference to share good practice and be part of the community in a supportive, hands-on teaching practice open space. We very much welcome everyone from early, mid and senior practitioners including those of you who have entered for or won teaching awards to come and share your work.  

You are welcome to propose your own theme but here are some ideas on additional topics you would like to discuss during the Conference:

Blended and authentic assessments

How do we make online learning compelling and innovative? Join us to discuss tried-and-tested blended and authentic assessments, and to identify best practices that have emerged.


Student engagement

Keeping students engaged is at the forefront of student learning and achievement. Online environments offer different challenges and opportunities for teaching practitioners in engaging students.

Student wellbeing and resilience educators

The lockdown has impacted everyone, raising significant wellbeing concerns, especially within higher education context. How do we as educators can support student wellbeing while developing our own resilience?


Learning and teaching technologies

Educators have had to learn new technologies and adapt existing practices to suit their new learning and teaching environments. Come to share and learn from one another the ‘hacks’ that we’ve acquired in our use of L&T technologies.

New opportunities

There has been plenty of challenges but, arguably, educators’ newfound capabilities offer new opportunities such as widening participation. Come and share your experiences in developing new opportunities that have emerged from the past months.

Open stream

We recognise that our experiences are rich and diverse. This stream welcomes educators to share their learnings, experiences and ideas from the past 12 or more months on any topic/ practice that does not fit any of the previous five streams.

As part of the day, we are delighted to be joined by three esteemed learning and teaching scholarly practitioners, Professor Catherine Cassell, Dr Inge Hill and Professor Denis Fischbacher-Smith, who will share their education leadership and experiences with delegates.
