Innovation and excellence in teaching and learning 2018

20 Mar 2018, 09:30 - 16:30
20 Tavistock Square 
United Kingdom


​​​A national one-day conference to examine innovative teaching and learning practice, and what we really mean by 'teaching excellence'. Produced in partnership with the Higher Education Academy, this conference will bring together experts, policy influencers and innovators to examine how universities can shape their learning and teaching strategies to deliver excellent and innovative teaching and learning.

Why now?​

As we emerge from TEF 2 and consider learnings to take forward into TEF 3 and beyond, this conference will be an opportunity for all those involved in shaping teaching and learning strategy to take a step back and consider what excellence and innovation looks like at their own institution.​

Supporting academic staff to take risks, training to bring staff up to speed with the latest technology and methods, and a coherent overarching teaching and learning strategy are vital to producing excellent teaching and learning. This conference will bring together innovators, policy experts and thought leaders to help you adapt your strategy, in the context of the current policy landscape.
