Event description

Description

The UEL Teaching and Learning Symposium is an opportunity for UEL staff to share best practices and innovative approaches to improving the experience of our students in the classroom. Through partnerships across London, we are providing a one-day intensive workshop style symposium for participants to acquire these tools to implement in their university context.

The theme this year is Inclusive Design, Inclusive Practice and we are pleased to welcome Professor Dilly Fung as our keynote speaker.

Prof Fung (PhD PFHEA FRSA) is the Pro-Director for Education at the London School of Economics (LSE) working to enhance student education within and across disciplines.

Her scholarship focuses on building synergies between research and student learning and her recent open access monograph, A Connected Curriculum for Higher Education, asks why education and research are so often seen as separate endeavours, and shows that students at all levels of study can be more creatively connected with research, with each other and with local and wider communities - for the global common good.

Another key area of interest is the importance of rewarding and promoting educators and education leaders in higher education for their vital work in the sector.

Prof Fung has previously held posts at University College London (UCL), the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and the University of Exeter. Prof Fung earned her Bachelor’s degree in English Language and Literature/Letters at the University of Southampton and holds a PhD in Higher Education from the University of Exeter.

Don't forget to submit your proposal for an interactive session by the new deadline of August 1, 2018.

We look forward to seeing you there!
