This year’s Learning and Teaching conference attracted a record audience as University staff gathered to learn about the latest developments and best practice in teaching and learning from the university and the sector.
Professor Daniella Tilbury, inaugural Vice Chancellor of the University of Gibraltar, delivered the keynote speech and asked participants to discuss the meaning of ‘Learning to Change’ and Sustainability’ before she delivered a presentation that considered the purpose of a university education for students and society.
Professor Gavin Brown, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, gave an overview of the fast-changing national context for Learning and Teaching, including the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). He also spoke about the university strategic review and his early thoughts on an Education Strategy.
Professor Brown said: “It was great to see so many colleagues at the conference and hear about the innovations in learning and teaching that are happening across the University. There were many exciting approaches shared and this is sure to have a very positive effect on enhancing the academic experience of our students in the coming year.”
A total of 58 presentations were given across a number of sessions from staff and students across all areas of the university, and, some of our partner institutions including XJTLU.
