Sponsored by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, the Learning Connections 2019 conference will bring together learners, teachers, architects, designers and all who support teaching, from across third level institutions: from universities; institutes of technology; community; industry; government agencies; policy makers; and regulators, under the frame of learning connections. This conference is underpinned by the following research questions:
- How can we connect across disciplinary boundaries, and break down barriers between academia, administration, community and industry to strive for optimal student learning in Third Level Institutions?
- How can learning in different spaces - physical, active, virtual, off campus, enable all students, as global citizens, to think through and solve big problems.
Includes: Attendance at one workshop (5th December) plus all-day attendance at conference event (6th December), tea/coffee and lunch on Day 2.
