, , Leave a comment

The ISSOTL conference provides a forum for scholarly conversations about teaching and learning in higher education. The conference this year had some 600 participants from fifteen countries to focus on the theme of Critical Transitions in Teaching and Learning. Papers covered a range of areas including the issues of undertaking inquiry in the class, involving students as co-researchers, learning space issues, assessment and implementing change. There was a constant theme throughout this year’s conference around how to make the scholarship of Teaching and Learning more visible within institutions and how to ensure the value of this work is seen. The conference had a mix of plenaries, workshops, papers and Posters. The plenary from Professor Lee Shulman was a great focus for many of the presenters to draw upon and keep returning to. It was a really vibrant conference with some great global conversations around enhancing teaching and learning and sharing this practice as well as the importance of situated learning stressed by Professor Shulman. My conference blog contains a brief overview of sessions I attended so please do follow this link for more information.
