A TOTAL of 201 delegates have registered to attend University of the West of Scotland’s annual Learning, Teaching and Research Conference, which will be held online on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 24, 2020.
The keynote, titled ‘PPE: Access to the World’, will be delivered by Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of University of the West of Scotland. The event will include a workshop from Dr Mays Imad of Pima Community College in Arizona and Dr Michael Reder of Connecticut College, Connecticut, as well as a discussion session where participants can share their own experiences of moving learning and teaching online during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Although this will be a smaller version of the original two-day, face-to-face event, it will still combine research and enterprise with learning and teaching, bringing colleagues together under the theme of Learning, Teaching and Research: Making a Difference. In addition, the conference organising committee will later publish an online conference proceedings – short articles featuring many of the proposals which had been accepted for the original two-day event – to highlight the teaching, learning and research carried out at UWS.
This will be the third UWS conference to combine research and enterprise with learning and teaching. The programme for this event is now available on the ‘schedule’ page of this website.
