Friday 21 June 2019 - The Spark

The Solent Learning and Teaching Community Conference (#SLTCC2019) promotes excellence in learning and teaching, connecting staff and students by providing a forum for exploring innovative opportunities and sharing best practice.

We are looking forward to another inspiring body of work from across the academic disciplines and professional services, and particularly encourage representation from learning and teaching enhancement projects with student partners.

Students come to university with a range of expectations and hopes. This year we want to hear about how our teaching is impacting students’ learning, consider how we can embrace the inevitable changes we face as a UK university, and work together to improve.

Research informed teaching
Research informed teaching (RIT) opens the door to the world of research for our learners, actively engages staff in pedagogic research, and encourages cocreation. How do you use RIT to this effect? 

Engagement and achievement
Learning should be at the heart of every student’s degree. Share how you engage your students and get them returning to the classroom. If you’re not in teaching, help us explore other ways the University supports students and monitors success on their journey through their degree. 

Technology enhanced learning (TEL)
Technology is all around us and is used in many ways to benefit higher education. TEL us about how you embed technology in your everyday and how this aids students in their learning. Why not share how you measure efficacy of technology in your HE setting. 

Authentic assessment and feedback
Being creative within assessment and feedback may be done through real-world projects, virtual learning or through podcasts. We want to hear about all innovation in assessment and feedback that engages and excites students.

Inclusive practice
Teaching designed and delivered in a way that embraces diversity and minimises barriers to participation, so that all learners have equal opportunity to achieve their potential. How are you tackling this aspect of the University experience?
