6th Learning and Teaching Symposium
Learning and Teaching for Retention
Wednesday 5th March, 13:00-16:30
(Lunch from 12 noon)
This symposium has a specific focus on student retention, and the ways in which interventions centred on learning and teaching might support student progress. It is anticipated that the symposium will provide a forum for sharing practice and encouraging institutional dialogue within our academic community about current challenges in this respect.
Although the subject is broad and complex, themes might include: the role of induction and pre-entry, assessment and feedback processes, the relevance of the Widening Participation agenda, tutor and learner identities and student centred learning.
A principle aim of the symposium is to identify research questions and key concepts that might be pursued within the university to inform and support the development of learning and teaching. We aim to create a bridge to enable us to realise ways in which these ideas might be enacted within our own practice.
