What does learning and teaching look like through a future lens ?

As we look forward to the Centenary celebrations in 2020, this year, we invite you specifically to share your experiences in learning and teaching , asking you to focus your presentation with a future perspective. SALT is delighted to now invite proposals for this year’s conference sessions to showcase excellent, effective practice in learning, teaching and assessment from across the University, through a future lens.

At the conference we will seek to explore how our experience shapes the future , considering both the journey and the destination ~ Professor Jane Thomas, Director SALT

We would like you to consider what has worked, or hasn’t, share strategies and interventions that you have employed, or that you intend to use, and above all demonstrate how your journey informs your teaching practice going forward. We particularly welcome collaborative submissions involving learners, that demonstrate the learner perspective and can impact on the experience of other learners at Swansea.

Submission Deadline

The deadline for submission of proposals is midnight on the 30th April 2019 

*** Extended deadline Date 10th May 2019.

Please keep in mind that the proposal you submit now will, if accepted, be used for inclusion in the conference programme and is the primary way that participants will choose which sessions to attend.
