  • UCL's sixth biennial Teaching & Learning Conference & Exhibition (TILT) was held on 15 and 16 April 2008.

    More than 300 people registered for the event, which included 36 plenary and parallel sessions, 13 workshop presentations, seven poster presentations, 20 posters exhibited and 18 exhibition stands.

    TILT 2008 was opened with a keynote speech, 'The inner game of higher education', by Professor Sir David Watson (Institute of Education). It, and most of the sessions, are available to view as podcasts. A blog also examines teaching and learning at 'London's global university'.

    Best Plenary Presentation Prize was awarded to 'Teaching Social Sciences to Spatial-Environment Planners and Future Built-Environment Professionals - Educating for Social Responsibility?', by Claire Colomb (UCL Bartlett School), while 'A Short Course in Medical Ethics in Women's Health: Internationalising the Curriculum', by Dr Ray Noble (UCL Institute for Women's Health) won Best Poster Prize.

    Held since 1998, TILT provides a forum for the UCL community to share good practice, to hear about innovative approaches and to discuss topics of current significance in teaching, learning and assessment. Among its sponsors this year were Apple, Misco, Q Associates, Reflex, Unilink Systems and Viglen.
