Innovative learning and teaching practice

Organised by the Academic Development division of the Centre for Lifelong Learning, the conference provides an excellent forum for colleagues to share innovative learning and teaching practice across the institution.

Professor Pat Thomson from Nottingham University presented a thought-provoking keynote speech focusing on higher education in the world of digital and social media. This was followed by 45 different workshop presentations, showcasing a wide variety of innovative learning and teaching developments across the institution. The day closed with sessions from each of the three faculties, with themes chosen by the Faculty Student Experience Leads, and a presentation entitled ‘A Liverpool Education in China’ from Stuart Perrin, the Dean of Learning and Teaching at XJTLU.
