Teaching and Learning Conference 2024: registration and abstract submissions open

October 31st, 2023

We would like to invite you to attend the university’s annual Teaching and Learning Conference.

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), 9.30am – 4.30pm (UK time) in the Monica Partridge building on University Park campus with online, hybrid, and in-person options connecting colleagues both within and across campuses.

Please use the MS form respective to the campus you are based to register for the conference:

Register to Attend from UoNUK

Register to Attend from UNNC

Register to Attend from UNM

If you are involved in Teaching and Learning anywhere in the university, this conference is for you.

The call for contributions from staff and students is now open and should align with the conference focus. Please find full details on the conference webpage.

Submit an Abstract UNUK

Submit an Abstract UNNC

Submit an Abstract UNM

The deadline for submissions is Friday 16 February and the final programme will be confirmed in April 2024.

The theme for this year’s conference is Thinking Higher: Interdisciplinarity and the Next Generation Curriculum.

‘Thinking Higher’ 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 C21st 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.

If you have novel ideas for conference sessions on any aspect of learning and teaching or the student experience outside the afore-mentioned themes, we enthusiastically invite you to submit a proposal under theme three ‘Other Considerations’.

‘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.

I was the University of Nottingham’s first Director of Teaching Enhancement from 1993 to 2002 and I am so pleased read about the Teaching and Learning Conference. It is wonderful to read how things have moved on from such humble beginnings. I would like to congratulate the organisers.
