Academic interest is increasingly turning to ways we can move from a traditional classroom-centred teaching approach to one that brings learning to life in real-world contexts.

Join us for a half-day conference which celebrates the diverse and imaginative approaches to authentic learning adopted by academic colleagues across the UK. Through a programme of talks and case studies, our speakers will offer a valuable insight into engaged pedagogies, as well as their experience of facilitating experiential, applied, and situated learning initiatives within their own institutions.

Topics covered include an exploration of how service learning helps students to develop agency and criticality; an introduction to a novel approach to interdisciplinarity and collaboration that helps to meet sustainability goals; and a consideration of how we can support students to develop professional identities through engagement with cultural artefacts. We will also assess the impact of Covid-19 on these innovations and understand how colleagues have worked to overcome some of the particular challenges that 2020 has brought to us all.

This free online conference is co-hosted by the Centre for Learning and Teaching, University of Bath and King’s Academy, Kings’ College London. It is relevant to all academic colleagues who are interested in exploring new approaches to teaching, particularly those with an interest in enterprise, innovation, sustainability, student partnership or the civic agenda.
