The Annual Learning and Teaching Conference will be held in the Peter Froggatt Centre on 17th April 2019. This year’s theme is ‘Shaping Change in an Educational Setting’ and will explore:

  • How Queen’s University Belfast is shaping change in a higher education landscape.
  • How these changes are reflected in the student experience at Queen’s.
  • How these changes can positively impact on learning and teaching at Queen’s.

We are calling for proposals from staff for oral and poster presentations on this theme. The theme will be organised into 4 key strands:

  • Supporting all students to live, learn and work in an ever-changing world.
  • Exploiting the potential of digital technology to enhance the learning and teaching experience for all.
  • Linking research to instructional strategies and applying research to practice.
  • Widening access and incorporating effective practice so that all students can fulfil their potential.

Oral presentations will be up to 15 minutes in length. For the poster session, we encourage students and staff to produce joint posters on examples of how they are responding to change in their discipline. We hope that all Schools would be represented at the conference in some way.
