The 12th Learning at City conference will take place on the Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th June 2022.
We are planning to hold the conference on-campus with elements of online interaction, but this will be subject to any restrictions in place at the time.
Opportunities to transform the future of higher education
The place of digital learning became central to education due to the pandemic and this change in models of teaching, learning and assessment are here to stay (Maguire, Dale & Pauli 2020).
This has enabled staff and students to be creative and the future offers many opportunities to transform learning so that it is inclusive, accessible and flexible.
Sharples (2019) discussed the transformations occurring not just through bringing technology into classes but through real improvements in the theory and practice of teaching.
Until the pandemic, whilst some lecturers did want to implement innovation and more active learning in their classes, there were often constraints that prevented this. Due to a myriad of constraints, teachers often resort to more traditional, conservative approaches to teaching and learning (Herodotou et al 2019).
There has been an immense amount of innovation and learning across the sector in the last 2 years and so we invite you to share this with colleagues.
Submit an abstract to share your learning both what worked and what might not have gone so well.
Even when things did not go as planned there has been good practice learnt from this and others would benefit from the sharing of these experiences.
Within this theme there are a range of sub-themes you could focus upon for your abstract and these include:
- Curriculum design and review
- Assessment design
- Learning and teaching approaches
- Activities and strategies that support students through their programme
- Activities to build and support learning communities.
