Connect 2: [Teaching, Learning, Research, Enterprise]
Monday 13 September 2010
Call for short papers & posters: Please circulate widely within your School/Service
The theme of this year’s conference is the learning, teaching, research and enterprise interface, specifically focussing on the following 3 key areas:
the ways in which subject-specific research and enterprise activity informs teaching and learning
the ways in which pedagogical research or enterprise activity helps us to enhance teaching and learning
the ways in which we teach our students, and they learn, to be researchers and to be enterprising
The conference will comprise keynote speakers, open space sessions, short papers, a poster exhibition and a plenary discussion panel.
We invite you to share existing good practice within the institution by submitting papers and posters that address the Conference theme, possibly but not necessarily against the following sub-themes:
Introducing enterprise and/or research to first-year students
Progression: challenging our students and developing critical thinkers
Engaging all students: working with differing abilities
Developing trust; encouraging risk taking
Interdisciplinary foundations for research and enterprise
Converting theory into practice – case-based and action-learning approaches
If selected your completed paper should be deliverable in 10 minutes with 10 minutes for questions and answers. If you would prefer to communicate your research via poster format, please supply an A1 size pdf file in either portrait or landscape format.
Short papers and posters for submission will go through a selection process.
