Flexible Learning Symposium (Advance HE)

Flexible learning leverages the benefits of pedagogy and technology to provide an engaging, personalised learning experience that supports all students to achieve their potential. However, an effective flexible learning model requires consideration of the differing needs of academic and professional staff and students. This symposium aims to explore the issue holistically from all perspectives to inform whole-university approaches to overcoming challenges and enhancing the student experience. The symposium, via keynotes, oral presentations and workshops, will bring together experts in Flexible Learning, alongside practitioners from the sector, to share the latest ideas, initiatives and best practice.
