UCL Teaching & Learning Conference 2014
Inspiring Students with Research-based Education
Thursday 3rd April 2014
Teaching and Learning Conference is a chance for us to come together from
across the diverse disciplines and departments within the university, in order
to develop and improve teaching, learning and assessment
through collegial dialogue and exchange.
Our Keynote Speakers are Provost Michael Arthur and Etienne Wenger-Trayner. Michael Arthur has emphasised the importance of research-based learning, "taking students to the edge of knowledge". Etienne Wenger-Trayner is an internationally recognised scholar in the field of social learning and 'communities of practice' (link to page). He has authored and co-authored seminal books on the topic, including Situated Learning and Communities of Practice: learning, meaning and identity.
The conference aims to facilitate scholarly conversations about educational initiatives and practices in the university and what can be learnt from them. A key theme of the conference will be how we can inspire students with research-based education. This includes not only their being taught by our world-leading researchers, but also creating opportunities for students to engage in research-like activities, as well as underpinning our teaching practice with evidence from educational research.

UCL Teaching and Learning Exchange - Feedback: what works?
Dr Dilly Fung - CALT Director
4th December 2013 from 1pm-2pm
Gavin de Beer Lecture Theatre (G04), Anatomy
Giving students the best kinds of feedback in a timely manner and in the most effective formats can be a big challenge. Drawing on a recent analytical review of what research tells us about ‘feedback on assessment’ processes and practices in higher education (Evans, C. ‘Making Sense of Assessment Feedback in Higher Education’, Feb 2013), we’ll discuss ways of conceptualising and delivering feedback which make sense to both students and staff in our research-led context.
