Your chance to share your teaching practice

1 July 2014

UCL Arena Teaching Learning Conference 2014

UCL staff who teach or support learning are invited to submit their presentation ideas for next academic year's UCL Arena Exchange sessions.

Informal and interactive seminars give staff the chance to share their approaches to teaching with colleagues across UCL.

Each hour-long session begins with a 20-minute presentation followed by questions and discussion.

“Any approaches to teaching and assessment that help students to learn are welcome,” said Dr Rosalind Duhs, Centre for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching (CALT).

“Staff who are using research-based education – which the Provost is very keen to promote – are extra welcome. This could involve including students in your research process or giving students the chance to do their own research.

“Staff who lead or attend a session will be able to cite this activity in their UCL Arena applications as an example of their active involvement in developing education.”

All UCL Arena Exchange sessions are held in the Arena Room on the ground floor of 1-19 Torrington Place.

To suggest a presentation topic, please download the proposal form.
