Showcasing excellence in business and management education

LTSE_withwords

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

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.

Bringing together business schools from across the UK, the two-day conference features a unique mix of high-quality workshops, paper presentations and poster sessions evidencing innovative teaching practice and cutting-edge pedagogic research. In addition there are thought provoking keynote addresses and plenty of informal discussions and networking.

After a sell out event in 2016 we anticipate that 2017 will be our largest gathering to date!

This year's Keynote Speakers are:

Berry-O-Donovan

Berry O'Donovan
Principal Lecturer Student Experience
Oxford Brookes University Business School

Phil-Race

Phil Race
Assessment, learning and teaching in higher education

Jane-Harrington

Professor Jane Harrington
Deputy Vice Chancellor and Provost
University of the West of England

Innovative teaching practice and new pedagogic research will be evidenced in more than 80 workshops and research & poster presentations.
