- Nottingham Conference Centre
- 29 March 2010 00:00 - 31 March 2010 00:00
Online booking is now open for the 7th annual LDHEN Symposium.
This year’s conference is a joint event organised by the LearnHigher CETL (www.learnhigher.ac.uk ) and the Learning Development in Higher Education Network (LDHEN). It will be hosted by Nottingham Trent University on 29th, 30th and 31st March 2010, and held in the newly-opened Nottingham Conference Centre.
The theme this year is "Celebrating Partnerships in Learning", reflecting the achievements of LearnHigher, as a collaboration between sixteen universities, and of LDHEN with its emphasis on the value of leaning partnerships between students, academics, researchers and developers.
Glynis Cousin, Director of Institute for Learning Enhancement and of Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning www.wlv.ac.uk/default.aspx?page=17722
Marcia Baxter Magolda, Distinguished Professor, Educational Leadership, Miami University www.units.muohio.edu/eap/edl/faculty/Baxter_magolda.html
Glynis and Marcia are both ardent exponents of putting students at the heart of higher education; Glynis emphasises the role of ‘learning journeys’, and Marcia the development ‘self authorship’ by students. In their work, the notion of partnership is central to their interpretation of learning development.
In addition to these exciting speakers there will be more than 40 presentations and workshops on a range of themes encompassing learning partnerships of all kinds. Full details of the programme and how to book can be found on the conference website. The annual general meeting of the Association for Learning Development in Higher Education (ALDinHE) will also be held at the conference, on Tuesday 30th March.
Early booking is advised for this popular annual gathering – described by one of last year’s participants as “…a fabulous event in every way!”
