Teaching and Learning Conference 2023: Shaping the future of HE

Our flagship conference attracting HE practitioners involved in all aspects of HE teaching and learning from the UK and overseas.

Overview

Teaching and learning in higher education continues to be an area of constant change with staff, students and institutions still developing and evolving their models of higher education as we emerge from the pandemic. Join us at the Advance HE Teaching and Learning Conference 2023 to discuss how we can shape the future of teaching and learning in higher education across the globe and share how you are shaping your teaching, your department, your institution and your future in higher education.

Ongoing debates across the globe focus on teaching excellence, value, the student experience, student engagement and student success and, in some countries including the UK, the topic of fees and the current rise in the cost of living adds to the tensions. Add to this the continuing discussions around flexible modes of deliveryfrom hyflex to in person, online or hybrid. What blend of these should we use? What blend do our students want? Is this changing over time? Is this evolving? Does it vary by discipline, the level of study, regulatory requirements, or student characteristics?

The complexity of the challenge and the recognition that no-one model suits all, means there is no better time to work together, to share practice, learn from our success and our failures to work together to shape the future of teaching in higher education. Whether you are a Small and Specialist provider, a post-92 institution, an independent provider, a Russell Group university, a college-based higher education provider or any other institution offering tertiary education there are common challenges and common learning and #TLConf23 is the place to support this.
