Keynote replacement announced for #IDLT2018

  • Date: Thursday 22 - Friday 23 March, 2018

WE ARE delighted to announce Dr Carl Gombrich of UCL as our new keynote speaker at this year’s Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching: Pedagogy and Practice conference.

Dr Gombrich, who leads UCL’s interdisciplinary Liberal Arts and Sciences programme, will start the conference, replacing Dr Vanda Zajko, who was previously advertised but has had to withdraw due to unforeseen circumstances.

He is a regular presenter at events on interdisciplinarity and liberal arts and sciences both in the UK and abroad and researches and writes about multiple themes related to contemporary liberal and interdisciplinary education, including the future of work, notions of expertise and the history of education.

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.
