Inaugural European Conference on the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL)
This event will showcase European scholarship on teaching and learning and the implications and applications for teaching and learning. It is open to all Higher Education staff and students.
Many educational development initiatives emphasize a scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) approach, but what does this mean, in theory and in practice? How can the scholarship of teaching and learning help to tackle some of the key challenges higher education is currently facing, and help institutions and academics stay focused on quality student learning? The inaugural EuroSoTL conference will address these general themes and is open to all Higher Education staff and students and those interested in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. Keynotes include: - Professor Kathy Takayama, President of ISSOTL, Director of the Sheridan Center for Teaching & Learning and Adjunct Associate Professor, Brown University, USA - Professor Veronica Bamber, Chair of the QAA ‘Student Transitions’ Enhancement theme and Director of the Centre for Academic Practice in Queen Margaret University, UK - Professor Joelle Fanghanel, Professor of Higher Education and Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic Development & Scholarship), University of West London, UK
