Friday 23 June 2017 - The Spark

The Solent Learning and Teaching Community Conference (#SLTCC2017) promotes excellence in learning and teaching, connecting staff and students by providing a forum for exploring innovative opportunities and sharing best practice. 

Registration for #SLTCC2017 is now open. Scroll down to book your place and find out more about the programme. Following the success of last year's conference it is essential that you book your place in advance. 

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 development projects with student partners.


This year we are exploring how transformative pedagogy can inspire and assist students through the following themes:

Supporting the student experience
Student progression, retention and achievement.

Research informed teaching
Research informed teaching opens the door to the world of research for our learners, actively engages staff in pedagogic research, and encourages partnership.

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.

Blended learning
Blended learning involves the thoughtful and creative integration of information and communications media with face-to-face teaching, enhancing the student learning experience by recognising differing learning requirements and expectations.

Learning spaces for the future
Continuing the conversation around learning spaces for the 21st Century (SLTCC 2016), we are looking to explore the interaction of physical, virtual and social learning spaces with pedagogy and practice.
