This one-day event has been designed to help colleagues reflect upon and develop their approaches to learning and teaching. It features contributions from sector-leading experts, insights from colleagues at other institutions, and examples of how cutting-edge research here at Bath can help to make university courses everywhere more inclusive and engaging.
Save the date!
We're delighted to announce that next year's EduFest will be held on Tuesday 5 May in The Edge. The main theme of our annual learning and teaching conference will be: Transitions in Higher Education.
In the changing landscape of higher education increasing attention is being paid to the ways in which individuals and communities cope with change. Students face the challenge of a new form and level of education, staff are having to negotiate new ways of working and new identities, and leaders are being forced to contemplate rapidly changing demands from all stakeholders. We look forward to the debate and to celebrating some of the excellent work carried out at the University in this domain.
Once again, a programme of EduFest follow-on events will be scheduled to continue the debate and discussion.
Call for Papers for Talking Points and Lightning Talks
The second annual EduFest event took place on 9 May 2019. The key theme was Empowering students and staff in the delivery of teaching excellence. The sub-themes - Employability, Inclusivity, Research-engaged learning and Student engagement - reflected fundamental concerns in shaping students’ outcomes and experiences across the University.
Our guest speaker, Dr Camille Kandiko Howson, gave the keynote address, which was followed by a series of panel events, lightning talks, and masterclasses from staff and students from Bath and beyond.
The inaugural EduFest event took place on June 7 2018, and was attended by over 100 colleagues from across the University, as well as a number of students and external guests. EduFest 2018 focused on four of the key themes in our Education Strategy (2016-2021): Inclusion; Research engagement; Sustainability; and, Assessment for learning.
