Student Education Conference

LITE is proud to be responsible for the University’s annual Student Education Conference (SEC). Held every January, the conference brings together our community of staff and students who are committed to positive change to the learning and teaching experience through research, scholarship and innovation.

If you’re not sure what to watch first, the Deans for Student Education and the Dean for Online and Digital Education have chosen a few highlights to get you started.

SEC 2022: 6th & 7th January

The Covid pandemic and the challenges of adapting to a new way of working and delivering the student education experience has placed sense of belonging at the heart of discussions around student education.  The theme of ‘Belonging and Community’ seemed an appropriate choice for the 2022 conference.

The standout for many was the student voice, whether from students delivering parallel and snap sessions or the inspiring and thought provoking student panel.

The energy and engagement from all who participated was inspiring. The two day conference included a  keynote presentation from Prof. Eric Mazur from Harvard University (watch again here), reflections from the LUU Executive Officers and a range of parallel and snap sessions.

University of Leeds colleagues can watch all of the conference session again.
