Teaching & Learning


Initiatives and resources supporting the objectives of UCL's Education Strategy 2016-21


UCL Education Conference

UCL has been holding internal teaching and learning conferences in a variety of forms to share interesting practice and stimulate discussion for nearly 20 years.

Every year the UCL Education Conference (formerly the Teaching and Learning Conference) brings together  the UCL education community  to share innovative and exciting practice and highlight solutions to perennial challenges in teaching and learning. Staff and students present in a range of formats about any issue pertinent to teaching and learning, and sessions are designed to facilitate discussion among the whole UCL community.

Emphasis on inclusive education

We welcome contributions relating to any aspect of education at UCL. All proposals must foreground initiatives and practice that have made progress towards inclusive learning.

Abstracts must not exceed 300 words. 

In 2019 we welcome contributions relating to any aspect of education at UCL, but are particularly interested in successful examples of inclusive teaching and learning, including but not limited to: 

  • BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) attainment
  • inclusive and creative assessments
  • widening participation
  • accessibility for students requiring additional support
