This year’s theme depicts the ways in which teaching can be characterised.
The aim of L&T Day is to examine the range of teaching at UEA. How has teaching changed in the past 10 years? How do we respond to the greater diversity of our students? How do we combine academic excellence with a more learner-centred perspective? How do we meet the challenges and opportunities of learning technologies and social media? To what extent do more traditional forms of teaching and learning still have value? And finally, taking into account context and subject discipline, what constitutes excellence in teaching?
The L&T Day Steering Group have drawn up 3 strands, to be run concurrently which are:
Strand 1: Students as co-creators in learning
The ways in which research can drive learning either through enabling students to become researchers and/or introducing students to the current research topics.
Strand 2: Research-Led Teaching/Enterprise
The construction and implementation of innovative teaching and learning that will develop the 'enterprising student' and any implications for employability this may have.
The way in which students can participate in constructing the curriculum, in framing research questions and in devising appropriate forms of assessment.
Strand 3: Inclusivity
Developing learning strategies that take account of the diversity of our students including the variety of cultural backgrounds and experiences that they bring into the university.
These will become available as we get them:
