University of Glasgow, Senate Room, Gilbert Scott Building
Date(s):
28 October 2008 10:00-16:15

The Learning & Teaching Centre at the University of Glasgow would like to invite you to a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Symposium.

The symposium will focus on exploring ways in which student experiences of learning can be better understood and how these experiences can inform our teaching and learning practice. The keynote address at the symposium will explore student experiences of running an online journal entitled 'eSharp' and will be given by Anneleise Mackintosh and Simone Hutchison from the Faculty of Arts. Other speakers include Dr Gayle Pringle, Faculty of Law, Business and Social Sciences, Dr Peter Sneddon, Physics and Astronomy and Dr Jo Sharp, Geographical and Earth Sciences.

Delegates will have a choice of attending either a SoTL paper discussion group OR a workshop.

The SoTL paper discussion group will discuss the following journal article: Trigwell, K & Shale, S. (2004) Student learning and the scholarship of university teaching’. Studies in Higher Education 29 (4) 523-525.

The workshop will be an opportunity to discuss and share ideas about ways in which student experiences of learning can be gathered and understood in order to enhance practice.
