Conference Theme

Conference Theme: Access to Opportunity

This theme will allow us to showcase and celebrate the many opportunities that are open to students at UofG and across HE to develop transferable skills and graduate attributes.

The sub-themes are designed to expand on the overall conference theme and to help us to further embed the pillars of the current Learning and Teaching Strategy in our teaching and assessment practices, and to showcase how practitioners are achieving this. 

Subthemes

  • workplace learning
  • widening participation
  • working in partnership with Further Education
  • working in partnership with industry 
  • graduate attributes
  • skills development

Conference format and venue

The 2023 Conference will be a hybrid event taking place over 2 days.

Day One (29th March)

This will be totally online (Zoom).

Short prerecorded (ten minute) videos will be uploaded to the UofG ADD YouTube account to publish on the day of the conference. Parallel sessions will use a 'watch party' format (Kuepper-Tetzel, C. and Nordmann, E. (2021). Videos will be live streamed by the session chair. Presenters will join the session chair on the Zoom stage in order to answer questions from the audience.

Digital posters will be uploaded to these web pages and published one week prior to the conference. There will be opportunities to ask the poster authors questions.

Day Two (13th April)

This will be on campus in the James McCune Smith Learning Hub.

Practitioners with experience of designing and facilitating active learning sessions will be running interactive workshops and drop in sessions related to the conference theme and subthemes. This event is being co-ordinated by the UofG Active Learning Network Satellite Group
