Bookings open and keynote announced for Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching: Pedagogy and Practice conference

  • Date: Thursday 22 - Friday 23 March, 2018

BOOKINGS are now open and a keynote has been announced for this year’s Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching: Pedagogy and Practice conference.

Dr Vanda Zajko, Programme Director for the interdisciplinary BA and MLib Liberal Arts programmes at Bristol University will use her keynote address to reflect on the rewards and challenges of designing interdisciplinary curricula and programmes.

The event, funded by the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE), will be held at the University of Leeds over two days on March 22 and 23.

Over the course of both days, various themes will be explored including the emerging practices of interdisciplinary learning and teaching and examination of the impact and application of pedagogy on these new forms of curriculum design and delivery.

Participants will also be invited to consider the diverse ways in which universities are choosing to support and resource ventures into interdisciplinary programme design and deployment

Dr Raphael Hallett, Director at LITE, says: “Given the recent blossoming of Liberal Arts programmes across the UK, and a new focus on curriculum development that offers students breadth, combination and diversity of learning, it is the perfect time to examine the question of pedagogy in this area.”

The event builds on previous conferences hosted by the University of Sheffield in 2016, and The Open University last year.
