UCL Education Conference

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.
