Teaching Conference at Keele - Call for Papers
The call for papers for this year's Enhancing Student Learning Through Innovative Scholarship conference which is to be held at Keele University has just been released. This year the theme is Embracing Failure for Well-being: For Educators and Learners. Failure has a bad reputation but put bluntly is often the gateway to learning, whereas instant success is often a hollow victory. Staff undertaking innovative scholarly projects in teaching enhancement often run into issues and challenges and have to adapt their thinking. Similarly creating safe spaces for students to fail, allows for reflection and a deeper engagement in learning. Dr Graeme Jones of the School of Physical and Chemical Sciences is the local organiser for this conference.
