Event description

Description

With the Teaching Excellence Framework being implemented across England, a lot of higher education institutions have started to ask questions about what it means to be “excellent” in teaching. In particular, with the rich and complex data that all educational institutions gather that could potentially capture learning gains, what do we actually know about our students’ learning journeys? What kinds of data could be used to infer whether our students are actually making affective (e.g., motivation), behavioural (e.g., engagement), and/or cognitive learning gains? Please join us on 22 January 2018 in lovely Milton Keynes at a free OU- and HEFCE-supported event on Using data to increase learning gains and teaching excellence.

This open event brings together nearly two and half years of research on learning gains and teaching excellence, across numerous institutions, also including University of Surrey, Oxford Brookes University, and The Open University (http://abclearninggains.com). This one-day event is a great opportunity to share expertise, research insights, and policy insights. We are keen to get a wide and broad perspective of learning gains, and we therefore would like to invite you to present your work. For up to date programme, see http://abclearninggains.com
