The Teaching and Learning Conference will be held on Tuesday 4 July 2017 in the Haworth Building and Murray Learning Centre. This year’s conference focuses on ‘Research-intensive Teaching at the University of Birmingham’.

The Conference sets out to describe and examine what research-intensive teaching means, how teachers can embed research into teaching and learning and how excellence in teaching can be achieved at a research-intensive university.

Keynote speaker PVC (Education) Professor Kathy Armour will examine ‘Teaching Excellence in a Research-Intensive University’ and Professor Mike McLinden (School of Education) will address the question ‘What is Research-Intensive Teaching?’. There will also be an invited external speaker. This year also sees the return of the popular ‘Lightning Session’, where colleagues will deliver two-minute presentations, and there will be a discussion with a student panel.

The parallel workshops in the afternoon will be an opportunity to focus ideas from the morning sessions and explore their relevance in and outside of the classroom.

The conference is planned by the Teaching Academy, and is open to all staff who teach or support student learning. You can see further details on the Teaching Academy website and registration is now open.  If you would like to present a two-minute talk in the ‘lightning session’ please email a title your topic with 3-5 lines describing the content to teachingacademy@contacts.bham.ac.uk.
