The Centre for Learning and Teaching works with colleagues across the university and its partner colleges to improve the student learning experience.  We offer informal consultancy to individuals and course teams, professional development through courses, seminars and online resources, and run a variety of events and conferences such as the annual  Learning & Teaching Conference.  We also undertake educational research projects, some externally funded, others internally commissioned by the University, and contribute to the development of institutional and national policy.

In collaboration with Information Services the Centre for Learning and Teaching has developed the Digital Literacies Framework which will support the university's digital transformation.

You can find more information about each of these areas of activity through the links or by using the search box. Please contact the CLT office (details at bottom of each page) if you would like to discuss any aspect of your teaching.

Annual Pedagogic Research Conference


Friday February 6th 2015

This is a reminder that the University’s Annual HE Pedagogic Research Conference will be held on Friday 6th February 2015 on the Falmer Campus. If you are interested in offering a contribution to the conference, please read the information below.

Information for contributors

The conference aims to provide a friendly, informal environment in which colleagues from the University and its partner colleges can discuss research matters and share their experience. Offers of seminars, presentations or workshop sessions relating to the following themes will be particularly welcome:

    improving participation, retention and progression

    enhancing teaching, learning, assessment or achievement at all levels of HE

    curriculum development

    transition into and trajectories through HE

    relations between HE and learning in other settings, including work and the community

    the ‘student experience’

    research methodology.

We encourage presentations of work-in-progress, which we find often provide the most interesting conference sessions.

There is no preferred style or method of presentation, but we would particularly like to encourage you to include opportunities for discussion in your session. The length of each session is usually 45 minutes. Alternatively, if you would prefer to make a poster or other visual presentation, these will also be very welcome.

You are welcome to discuss your idea initially with Adrian Chown in the Centre for Learning and Teaching (on extension 4551 or email A.M.Chown@brighton.ac.uk). The closing date for proposals is Friday 21st November 2014.
