Building networks, partnerships and communities
Held on Friday, 25 June 2010 at Harcourt Hill Campus | Programme
What creative ways are we engaging learners in our teaching, or engaging with our learners in developing both teaching and learning? How are we responding to the demands of new markets and where are we integrating technologies to their best advantage? Whilst the experience of students on our courses sits at the heart of discussions about learning and teaching, how can we also harness the benefits of engagement in research, community ventures and knowledge transfer in our teaching practices?
The learning and teaching conference took place on 25 June 2010 sharing innovations and provoking alternative thinking about our teaching in order to improve the learning experiences of all who work, study or collaborate with the University. The conference brought together colleagues from within, and beyond, Brookes to learn from each other through open exchange.
This year, the conference hosted a large exhibition of posters, stands and demonstrations of innovations in learning and teaching, many of which included new technologies. The exhibition was held in the Glasgow Room and delegates were welcome to browse at any time. A timetable of demonstrations formed a parallel stream of the conference throughout the day. In addition, during the lunchbreak there was a series of short poster presentations by exhibitors.
