The York Learning and Teaching Forum organises the University’s Learning and Teaching Conference to provide an opportunity to exchange ideas, and to celebrate and disseminate good practice in learning and teaching. Typically, this annual conference is hosted during week 9 or 10 of the summer term.
The York Pedagogy will shape the ways in which we consider our programmes, our teaching and assessment for years to come, defining our institution’s learning culture and setting performance expectations. All programmes will have distinctive and clear objectives, and modules will be designed to offer progress towards them. Student work will also support progress towards these objectives and assessments, though largely delivered at module level, will ultimately demonstrate attainment of overarching objectives. Interactions between students and staff will propel students’ work and programmes will define what students can expect from their department and university. The 2017 conference provided an excellent opportunity for discussion of how departments are managing these changes to their programmes, exploring challenges, opportunities and benefits as a result of implementation.
Check out the 2017 conference pages for the keynote and workshop abstracts, slides, chair’s summaries and links to Panopto video recordings of the sessions.
