Learning Global - Fourth Learning & Teaching Conference

Date posted: 11/11/2010

University of Wolverhampton
Wednesday 11 May and pre-conference event Tuesday 10 May 2011

Call for abstracts, deadline: 3 January 2011

Following the success last year of the University of Wolverhampton's Learning Dialogues conference, the university are delighted to invite abstracts for their fourth conference, to be held on Wednesday 11 May 2011. They welcome submissions from as wide a range of Higher Education practitioners as possible with presentations addressing the theme of Learning Global.

Better understanding of the implications of global learning is an important element in the contemporary scholarship of Learning and Teaching. The Learning Global conference is designed to provide a forum in which effective, evidence-informed practice can be shared and debated. They hope to have one of the keynote presentations delivered by an international expert via video conferencing.

They are particularly interested in submissions from individuals or groups reporting innovative research into global learning.

The Learning Global conference will be organised around four themes:

  • Global Learning issues of employability and assessment
  • Technology enhanced global learning
  • Learning global as a transnational opportunity
  • Researching the international student experience and global citizenship 

The conference provides an opportunity to present research papers, interactive workshops and posters and for developing discussions about the significance of Learning Global to effective Learning and Teaching in Higher Education. Submissions are welcomed from all involved in Learning and Teaching, both those with significant experience in this area, and those who are new to Higher Education.
