6th annual conference, 25-26 April
Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel

The call for workshops, papers and posters is now closed. Many thanks to all those who made a submission.

Submissions are currently under review and a full programme will be announced by mid-February.

The pursuit of teaching excellence is more important than ever. Government policymakers, university leaders and students themselves are demanding ever more from those who deliver higher education in the UK. Moreover, a broad view is being taken. Teaching excellence covers not only the teaching itself but also the learning environments in which it takes place, and the outcomes it delivers for students.

Learning, Teaching & Student Experience is the UK's showcase of teaching excellence in business and management education.

Each year we receive a large number of outstanding submissions from all parts of the academy. Those who present at LTSE say that it is a great way to receive constructive feedback about current research, develop knowledge and ideas, help to build one’s personal network, refine teaching and communication skills, and to help to move a piece of research towards publication.

All submissions need to be received by Friday 20th January. Submissions received after this date will not be considered for inclusion.

Workshop

Delivering a workshop is a great way of evidencing innovative teaching practice. For example this could be:

  •  A case study of an initiative that has been carried out / is in progress
  •  A live classroom simulation whereby the presenter(s) demonstrate an example of best practice.

Notes:

  • Each submission must be no more than 1,000 words (including title, abstract, main text, figures, graphs, tables, references)
  • Each workshop will be allocated 30min inclusive of Q&A
  • Each workshop room will be set up with a laptop, projector and screen. Presenters wishing to use supporting technology or other aids need to provide these themselves.
  • Each room will be set up ‘theatre style’. Presenters wishing to change the layout of the room for their session should inform the Chartered ABS in advance of the conference.
CHAR0444

Research Paper

Presenting a research paper is a valuable way of presenting the findings of a completed project or gaining feedback from the academy about an on-going piece of work.

Notes:

  • Each submission must be no more than 1,000 words (including title, abstract, main text, figures, graphs, tables, references)
  • Each research paper presentation will be allocated 30min inclusive of Q&A
  • Each room will be set up with a laptop, projector and screen. Presenters wishing to use supporting technology or other aids need to provide these themselves.
  • Each room will be set up ‘theatre style’. Presenters wishing to change the layout of the room for their session should inform the Chartered ABS in advance of the conference.
CHAR0407

Poster Presentation

Delivering a poster presentation is an effective way of sharing research findings or details of an ongoing teaching initiative with your colleagues in a visually engaging way.

Over the course of the two days there will be two dedicated poster presentation sessions enabling presenters to engage with a large section of the audience.

Notes:

  • Each submission must be no more than 1,000 words (including title, abstract, main text, figures, graphs, tables, references)
