More than 180 people attended the University’s 12th Annual Learning and Teaching conference which was held last week at the Foresight Centre – the highest number ever.
Attendees included academic staff, colleagues from the Senior Management Team and Professional Services, and students. We were also delighted to welcome Professor Youmin Xi and others from the Senior Management Team at XJTLU to the event. The keynote presentation, by Professor Pat Thomson from Nottingham University, proved both engaging and thought-provoking and an excellent start to the day.

The conference, organised by the Educational Development Division of the Centre for Lifelong Learning, provides an excellent forum for us all to share innovative learning and teaching practice, experiences and insights across the institution. It was a really good day. Forty five different workshop presentations showcased a wide variety of innovative learning and teaching developments from all three faculties. There was a real excitement and energy generated by the discussions we had and lots of food for thought.
The final session of the day included a presentation from Stuart Perrin, Dean of Learning and Teaching at XJTLU, as well as three interesting presentations giving us insights into key issues being addressed in each of the faculties. All in all it was a full day, and we hope a very enjoyable one.
