Take part in UAL’s 2014 Learning and Teaching day

UAL CLTAD learning and teaching day

UAL’s 2014 Learning and Teaching day will take place on 15 January 2014 at Chelsea College of Art and Design. The theme is Crossing Borders, which will explore how collaboration, in its many forms, can support students’ learning. The call for workshops and papers is out now! The deadline for submissions is 14th October 2013. All staff engaged in learning and teaching are warmly invited to take part.

Presenting at the learning and teaching day is an excellent opportunity to share your ideas, seek feedback, and meet colleagues in a supportive and engaging environment.

Gabriela Daniels, Technical Manager, Science and 3D, at LCF, who presented on learning videos at last year’s conference said

The L&T day offered us the first formal opportunity to  present the outcomes of our project and to discuss the findings with colleagues outside our immediate work environment. We also had a lively discussion with the audience. This did not change the project outcomes, as the research stages had already concluded, but  reinforced  them. Evaluation studies are important, and the best place to start sharing their findings is the UAL Learning and Teaching day!

You don’t have to present an academic paper – it can be a workshop or poster session. The more interactive and engaging for the audience the better. Go on – have a go! For full details of how to submit a proposal, visit CLTAD’s 2014 learning and teaching day web page.

“Overall, a fantastic day. Brilliant for knowledge sharing and making connections with people – I met and spoke to a series of people who I would love to talk to more and work with in the future. Again, I think the format of the day really encouraged conversation, which is great.”
