Building on the success of the University's annual Learning, Teaching and Assessment Conference over the past fifteen years, we launch a new annual conference that brings together learning, teaching and research as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations.
Exploring the research-teaching nexus, ie the links between research and teaching, provides the perfect focus for our inaugural conference. In a curriculum that takes full advantage of the research-teaching nexus, we would expect each of the conference themes to be present:
- Research-led - where curriculum engages learners with current research relevant to their subject, discipline or profession, including where possible the opportunity to interact and engage with researchers.
- Research-based - where students learn through research and enquiry-based activities.
- Research-informed - where curriculum is informed by evidence of effective educational practice drawn from educational research.
Through presentations, networking and scholarly discussion, we will exchange ideas/experiences for incorporating and/or strengthening the links between research and teaching for engaging our students.
