In the current HE climate with the emphasis on research it is timely to also raise the profile of teaching as an aspect of university business which should have equal status with research, especially where quality teaching could be argued to enhance university activity and prestige with the CETL funding. So, in the final year of the Centres for Excellence in Teaching and Learning this conference will consider the concept of the 'scholarship of teaching' particularly in relation to sharing learning with students.
Both MU CETLs have a wide range of experience of working with professionals as worker/ learners in different work contexts so the conference will focus upon teaching and learning from the perspective of both the learner and the teacher, considering themes around negotiated learning, learning from practice & work and peer assessment.
- Professor Ray Land, University of Strathclyde: the focus of this keynote will be on exploring enquiry-led teaching scenarios and research - teaching linkages involving students as co-producers and fellow enquirers.
- Louise Goldring, Student Engagement officer CEEBL CETL Manchester
University: the focus of this keynote will be on offering suggestions for a range of practical ways students and staff can work in partnership, including the use of internships.
A range of workshops from projects funded by the Middlesex CETLs focusing on the above themes will also be offered.
