Showcasing excellence in business and management education

LTSE_withwords

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

Interested in presenting?
Submit your workshop, best-practice case study, research paper or poster by Friday!

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!

Keynote speakers include:

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

Each year we receive a large number of outstanding submissions from all parts of the academy.

Presenting at LTSE is a great way to share best practice with your peers, develop knowledge and new ideas, build one’s personal network, refine teaching and communication skills, and move a piece of research towards publication.

Workshop

Delivering a workshop is a great way of demonstrating innovative teaching practice. For example this could be a case study of an initiative that has been carried out / is in progress or a live classroom simulation whereby the presenter(s) demonstrate an example of best practice.

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.

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.
