The academy brings in students from general education. It prepares them for a world of work and practice. In the process, it seeks to ‘transform’ them – opening students to the myriad of possibilities education is expected to bring. Considered within this context, there a multitude of issues we need to consider. How we support entry level students? How we foster the critical self-reflection needed for lifelong learning? In a technologically fluid world, how do we keep up with changing media and practice? How do we support the engagement and understanding of our students with the social issues and players they will engage with once they leave? In short, how are we contributing to the transformative experience of education? This conference seeks to foster a multifaceted consideration of what we do within the academy; how we teach; how students learn; and how we engage beyond its walls.
2023 European Learning & Teaching Forum (European University Association)
2-3 February 2023
Proposals due 7 October 2022
The event, entitled “Connecting people, spaces and realities”, will be hosted by the University of Deusto in Bilbao, Spain, on 2-3 February 2023. High-quality learning environments depend on well-functioning communication and a community of practice connecting learners, teachers, and other staff, but also on their capacity to relate to partner universities as well as local or regional stakeholders. These diverse inner- and inter-institutional connections are critical for initiating and sustaining innovation in learning and teaching, be it in view of developing transformative practices or promoting the wellbeing of members of a higher education institution. Yet, what can higher education institutions do to foster meaningful connections and collaboration within and across institutions, and with society, with a view to supporting successful learning and teaching? The 2023 European Learning & Teaching Forum seeks to explore these questions, while considering the enhanced range of opportunities that blended, flexible and collaborative learning and teaching practices offer, as well as how they relate to student and staff wellbeing.
