The pursuit of learning as a co-operative enterprise: implications for higher education
- Staffordshire University, Stoke on Trent
- 8 May 2009 10:00-16:30
This conference is hosted by the Institute for Education Policy Research at Staffordshire University, Ashley Centre for Professional Management, Leek Road, Stoke-on-Trent.
The theme of this year's conference is "The pursuit of learning as a co-operative enterprise: implications for higher education"
The speakers will be Professor Miriam David, Professor Peter Hartley and Paul Orsmond.
A possible effect of the changing student population in higher education and the increased emphasis on students to develop life-long learning attributes is that university teaching staff may wish to re-evaluate their approach to teaching and question more closely what student learning within higher education means. The annual Professional Development Conference at Staffordshire University is intended to help in that re-evaluation process and provides the opportunity for teaching professionals to talk with, and listen to, leading researchers into student learning. It is hoped that at the end of the conference participants will have a more informed approach to enhancing student learning and a clearer awareness of their own continual professional development needs.
