Learning and Teaching Conference 2022

8th and 9th June 2022

The theme for the University of Worcester Learning and Teaching 2022 conference is:   

Shaping the Future of Learning and Teaching

We are still emerging from the experiences of the pandemic and its impact on learning, teaching, assessment and the broader student experience. As we move back towards a campus-based experience, what have we learnt over this intense period that we can and should take forward into our learning teaching practice in the future? How do we take on-board the range of student feedback about being part of a community and creating a sense of belonging? 

We will explore this theme through inviting papers and case studies particularly related to the following strands: 

  • Digital is not just online – how can we bring those online experiences into the classroom and blended learning? 
  • Fostering a sense of belonging in and beyond the curriculum 
  • Innovating for the future – Reflections on learning, teaching and assessment practice throughout the pandemic and taking practice forward 

This year we are splitting the conference between a half-day online (8th June pm) and a day on-campus (9th June On-campus).

Keynote Speakers

This year we have two keynote speakers providing their perspectives on the future shape of learning and teaching. Sarah Knight is Head of Learning and Teaching transformation within the Higher Education and Research Directorate at Jisc. She is taking forward the outcomes of Jisc’s learning and teaching reimagined initiative and is supporting universities with their digital transformation of learning, teaching and assessment. We are also delighted to invite Meg Price back to the University. Meg served both as SU President and SU VP in her time at the University. On leaving, she stepped into a role as one of the Commissioners of the UPP Student Future’s Commission. Meg is now Policy Manager within Education Practice at Public First.
