Unlocking potential: the key to inspiring life-long and life-wide learning

The 15th annual Learning and Teaching conference took place on 13-14 June 2018. With a theme of ‘Unlocking Potential’, staff and students attended a range of sessions, with keynote presentations from Luke Millard and Eric Stoller, and a panel discussion with Dr Marie Stowell (Director QED), Jade Haley (outgoing SU President), Casey Bailey, Michelle Moore and chaired by Ross Renton (PVC Students).

There were over 200 people registered including colleagues from partner organisations; Walsall College, City of Wolverhampton College, NCT, and Worcester Housing Community Trust.
