Enhancing the student learning experience – a conference

leave a comment »

This sounds like a very good way to join up different support and technical services within an institution – particularly if academics and students who depend on these services also participate. The focus is Roehampton University, but all are welcome. Expressions of interest for running workshops or seminar sessions are invited.

Conference: Enhancing the Student Learning Experience

Wed 3rd June 2009, 9.30am to 3.30pm, School of Human and Life Sciences, Roehampton University.

A conference for technical, laboratory and support staff (academic staff also warmly welcomed) organised by Roehampton University’s Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit.

We are pleased to confirm that we will be organising a day conference for technical, laboratory and support / IT staff. There will be a particular focus on the themes of our newly launched 2009-2012 Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy, which emphasises the enhancement of the learning experience through a creative, attractive, inclusive and accessible curriculum that promotes student success.

The aim of the event is to enable staff with technical, laboratory and / or support roles to share innovation and good practice, and to enable networking opportunities with colleagues from other settings. Academic staff are also warmly invited to attend.

The programme will run from 9.30am to 3.30pm, and will include two keynote talks, as well as workshops and activities. We will be running workshops on a range of issues related to supporting learning and teaching in higher education, including:

  • Innovative e-learning ideas to support learning and teaching
  • Working with disabled students
  • Running your own workshops and presentations
  • Contributing to an inclusive and accessible curriculum
  • Listening to the “student voice”
  • Learning, teaching and assessment in higher education
  • Display and resources area

We invite you to express your interest in running or contributing to a workshop or seminar session.

Cost: £25
