The event is the biggest so far and will take place over two days – starting on Tuesday 28 April 2020 and finishing on Wednesday 29 April 2020 – please save these dates in your diary!

Anyone involved in Teaching and Learning across the University is encouraged to sign up for the conference.

Day one will include keynote speeches by Professor Rowena Murray from the University of the West of Scotland as well as a number of discussion sessions and workshops.

Day two will be a sandpit event where people will have the opportunity to team up with colleagues who are interested in developing a research projects specifically orientated to teaching and learning and linked to the University’s strategic plan.
