Learning and Teaching Conference 2014

The 2014 conference, attended by over 160 delegates, was on the theme of ‘Thinking outside the module box’.ThinkingOutsideTheBox_Logo_01

The VC, Professor Koen Lamberts, opened the day, taking questions on the vision for learning and teaching at York.

The keynote address was given by Dr Mitch Waterman from the University of Leeds exploring assessment and how it aligns to feedback and marking criteria.

A variety of workshops were run by York colleagues exploring the conference theme, including topics such as embedding employability in the curriculum, aiming to build a York graduate and skills progression.

In addition, 24 posters on current learning and teaching projects across campus were on display during lunch and tea.

Feedback has been very positive with people appreciating the chance to find out about initiatives in the university: ‘An excellent opportunity to see the diverse projects going on elsewhere’; ‘Interesting and informative day’; ‘Really looking forward to the next one’.
