Solent Learning and Teaching Community Conference 2016

The primary aim of the Solent Learning and Teaching Community Conference (SLTCC) 2016 was to promote excellence in learning and teaching, connecting staff and students by providing a forum for exploring innovative opportunities and sharing experience and best practice.

SLTCC 2016 took place in the Spark, our dynamic and interactive new learning centre, and included over 70 presentations from academic and professional services staff of Southampton Solent University and five neighbouring south coast universities.
