Learning and Teaching Conference 2010
Learning Dialogues, The University of Northampton Learning and Teaching Conference 2010, took place on 13 May at Sunley Management Centre.
In association with Escalate, the
HEA Subject Centre for Education.
Better understanding of learning dialogues is an important element in the scholarship of Learning and Teaching. Our conference was designed to provide a forum in which effective, evidence-informed practice could be shared and debated.
The learning dialogues conference was organised around four themes:
- Learning dialogues as a professional development tool
- Virtual learning dialogues
- Learning dialogues as talk and discussion in HE settings
- Researching the student experience through learning dialogues
The conference provided an opportunity to view presentations through research papers, interactive workshops or posters.
Our two keynote speakers for 2010 were:
Professor Neil Mercer, Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge
Keynote address: 'Dialogues for Learning'
Professor Mark Schofield (Visiting Professor), Dean of Teaching and Learning Development, Edge Hill University
Keynote address: 'Learning Dialogues in Learning Focused Universities - Alignment of Purpose, Audience and Form'
