Conference Homepage

University of the West of Scotland’s annual Learning, Teaching & Research Conference will take place in Paisley Campus on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th June, 2020.

This will be our third conference to combine research and enterprise with learning and teaching and the theme – Learning, Teaching and Research: Making a Difference – will let presenters and delegates explore different interpretations of how these key elements of higher education interact.

The call for proposals has now closed and peer review has begun.  Work is under way behind the scenes on producing a programme which captures a range of topics, from cutting-edge research to learning and teaching innovations, including as always our postgraduate research students, who play a major role in the event.

Last year around 250 delegates each day attended a range of workshops, presentations and lightning talks delivered by presenters from higher education institutions throughout Scotland, England and Europe.  UWS postgraduate research students displayed posters intended for a lay audience and took part in the finals of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition while Schools put on a showcase of their work.

Delegates commented:

Excellent opportunities for debate and discussion.

Very interested to hear about students working with their lecturers and co-presenting papers.

I felt that I got so much out of it – from the presentations/keynotes and from the networking opportunities.
