Learning at City Conference 2014

Students as Partners in Learning?

Wednesday 4th June 2014 | 9am - 6pm

Following the success of previous conferences, we invited colleagues from other HE institutions to contribute this year.

The conference took place off-campus, at The Hatton in Hatton Gardens.

Keynote Speech - Students as partners in learning: unlocking best practice

The Keynote speech was given by Dr Jenny Hill, Associate Professor of Teaching and Learning at The University of the West Of England and Rhiannon Jenkins, a second year undergraduate studying Geography and Environmental Management at UWE.

The theme for the conference was Students as Partners in Learning? Staff and students shared their practice, innovation and research in this area. This topical theme provided excellent opportunities for discussion and debate during the conference.

During the conference there was an opportunity to participate in workshops and to attend papers on the exciting partnerships taking place between staff and students both at City University and in the wider HE sector.

Posters were available for participants to view throughout the conference. There was a chance to discuss the posters with colleagues during the drinks reception at the end of the day.

A selection of slides, videos and other resources from the day are available on the Conference Catch-up 2014 page
