Transforming Teaching & Taking Stock

14th Annual University of Glasgow
Learning & Teaching Conference

Friday 18 June 2021 - #LTConf21
(Note change of date)

Conference theme

This past academic year has seen the most significant upheaval to our learning and teaching environment that any of us are likely to have experienced.

Under the theme of Transforming Teaching & Taking Stock, this year’s conference will be a chance to celebrate the developments, adaptations and innovations that have supported the success of our students, our staff, and of the University through the unique challenges of the past academic year.

It will also be a chance to reflect on our strong recent technological and pedagogical history in designing blended learning environments that laid the foundation for that success.

Conference Date & Platform

The event will take place on Friday 18 June. Details of our conference platform and instructions about how to connect will be announced during the registration stages.

(Please note the slight change from the original date of Thursday 17 June.)

Call for papers

A greater proportion of our programme will be dedicated than in previous years to shorter, 10-minute presentations with 5 minutes for questions. We anticipate that this will allow for a greater number of brief, less formal, interim-style case reports on what has (or has not!) been successful, and also reflects the reduced time that has been available to carry out more typical, full-scale scholarship projects. It will also allow more opportunity for informal conversation with colleagues between the sessions.

We will have a number of presentation slots available at our usual full length of 20 mins + 10 mins for questions. These may be particularly suitable for scholarship projects, formally designed investigations into practice, LTDF project outcomes. We also plan to make a number of 60-minute workshop slots available.

Finally, poster presentations will also be considered. These should be designed to be presented digitally, and we hope to make these available to attendees for browsing before the day of the event, with time on the day to ‘meet’ poster presenters at a dedicated small-group poster / networking session in the conference platform.

When submitting your abstract, please choose the one presentation type which you think best suits your content.

Selection criteria

  • The work is sufficiently accessible and interesting to a wide audience
  • The work can be clearly and effectively be presented in the allocated time
