Learning & Teaching Day 2015 Learning & Teaching Day 2015

About the day

Learning & Teaching Day is a collaboration between the Centre for Staff and Educational Development and the Learning & Teaching Day Steering Group consisting of members from LTS, CHE, HSC, EDU, UUEAS, CCEN, SSS and ITCS.

The event, now in its ninth year, is an opportunity for those involved in learning and teaching across the University and partner institutions to meet and explore themes across all disciplines.

The theme of this year’s day was ‘Student Transitions’.

Keynote sessions include:

  • Michael Grove, (Inaugural Director of the University of Birmingham’s STEM Education Centre) on Transitions into STEM Education.
  • Mick Healey (HE Consultant and Researcher) on Students as Partners in Learning and Teaching.
