Get involved in the 2012 Student Education Conference

If your current practice, or a project you have completed, helps the students you teach or support attain excellence during their time at Leeds then why not talk about it at next year’s conference?

The conference (formerly the Learning and Teaching Conference) is due to take place on Friday 6 January 2012, and the theme is Excellence.

The aim of the conference is to provide an intellectually stimulating and practically useful day for teaching, teaching-support and student-support staff to share successes and best practice, and an opportunity to motivate and be motivated by each other. The one-day event will comprise two keynote addresses, parallel sessions and an Exhibition Area.

There are several ways you can get involved: you can deliver a session of either 30, 60 or 75 minutes; or you can present a poster or demonstration in the SEC1 Exhibition Area in Parkinson Court. Sessions, posters and demonstrations can cover any aspect of learning and teaching or student support, from employability to engagement, from creating exciting research experiences and feeding those into future teaching to showcasing innovation and progression.

It's easier than ever to get involved this year - download an abstract template from the conference webpage, complete it and return it to Stephanie Stones before Monday 4 July 2011.

The Conference webpage will keep publishing up-to-date information about speakers, sessions and exhibitors, so do visit to find out what's happening.
