Save the Date – Teaching and Learning Conference 2024


October 17th, 2023

Dates for 2024’s Teaching and Learning Conference have been set, with a new hybrid event being introduced which will see the conference take place across two days, online and in-person.

Thinking Higher: Interdisciplinarity and the Next Generation Curriculum‘ explores the future of learning in higher education through the lens of enhanced interdisciplinarity and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

Both promise new heights of knowledge integration and collaboration across wide-ranging academic fields and professions. A more holistic understanding of the world that ensues, arguably has potential to better equip students to address complex challenges of the twenty first century such as climate change or growing societal disparities.

The conference invites participants to delve into the related themes of interdisciplinarity and AI technologies, share stories of navigating challenges and opportunities, and contemplate the next generation curriculum and future of learning.

We intend this year’s conference to run in a hybrid fashion and this year we are piloting an online day in addition to an in-person day dependent on the number of submissions.

Therefore, this year’s conference will take place across 2 days on Tuesday 23 April (Online) and Wednesday 24 April 2024 (In-Person) in the Monica Partridge building on the UK University Park campus with online, hybrid, and in-person options connecting colleagues both within and across campuses (UNUK, UNNC & UNM).

Registration to attend and the call papers will be coming soon. 

The future of learning’ central to the conference theme also threads through UoN TeachFests, which provide collegial and collaborative spaces to share experiences and exchange ideas before and after the conference: Sutton Bonington, 19 December 2023, and University Park, 5 July 2024.
