Keele Learning & Teaching Conference 2019

Social Learning

The Keele Learning & Teaching Conference 2019 saw over 140 delegates explore the theme of ‘social learning’ - with a keynote delivered by Simon Thomson, Director of the Centre for Innovation in Education, University of Liverpool.

Cross-disciplinary presentations from over 20 academic and professional staff at Keele explored various elements of ‘social learning’, ranging from the external-facing dimensions of the ‘civic curriculum’ to the dynamics of active learning and student co-design, and the importance of designing wellbeing into the curriculum. Live project workshops offered the opportunity to contribute to priority Keele education projects.
