Brookes Learning and Teaching Conference 2014

1st April 2014 is going to be a day to celebrate the fun and excitement of University teaching. Building on the success of previous years, the conference brings us together as a learning community to discover how we inspire and motivate each other to embrace the creative challenges of contemporary higher education.

The overarching theme for the conference and exhibition is: SPACE TO LEARN

We invite you to join us for this event, and welcome your proposals for demonstrations, workshops and debates, presentations, posters or performances that explore the spaces and times for learning – from the perspective of learners, teachers, professionals or leaders.

This might be about your own professional learning, intellectual development in higher education, lifelong learning, learning journeys and transitions, physical and virtual learning spaces, learning within and outside the classroom, learning through research, learning through work, learning across disciplines.

We encourage you to work with others on your proposal, and particularly welcome proposals that bring staff and students together.  Proposals can come from all levels of staff who support teaching and learning, and people or groups who have not previously shared their practice at the conference are particularly warmly welcomed.

If you would like to participate in creating this event, send your initial ideas in now via the form.

Deadline for expressions of interest: 11 December 2013.

For questions about this call, please contact Frances Deepwell.
