Learning and Teaching Forum 2021

17 November 2021 - 18 November 2021

The L&T Forum committee was excited to hold this year's L&T Forum: Reimagine Learning and Teaching: Possibilities and Practicalities which was held across two half days, on the afternoon of November 17th and the morning of November 18th. The Forum was presented online.

We had two exciting keynotes:

"As the sun rises on this new dawn for higher education it is illuminating new digital models of learning and teaching, while at the same time casting a shadow of darkness across some traditional, increasingly old fashioned, ways of working" (JISC, 2020, p.4).

The Forum this year investigated the learning gains of our staff and students, and shared the new ideas, approaches and resulting outputs that have emerged. We discussed, how has your teaching changed? What worked, what didn’t?

Our theme was driven by the USBS Strategy 2025 and our Education and Student Experience pillar. We also highlighted the positives that have come from our recent COVID crisis, specifically:

  • Sustainable teaching practices
  • Team-teaching
  • Alternative delivery methods
  • Online assessment
  • Sharing practice
