RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London W1B 1AD

What does and what should the future hold for art, design and media higher education teaching and learning? How can those teaching and supporting learning in art, design and media higher education contribute to this future?
- What pedagogic practices do we need to preserve?
What practices should we nurture and develop?
What can we afford to ditch?
We are very pleased to announce that Emma Hunt and Professor Maureen Wayman OBE will be our Keynote speakers. Also, we are pleased to welcome 12 colleagues (confirmed so far) from the Art, Design and Media Subject Network as presenters. They will anticipate future scenarios and lead discussions exploring pedagogic practices that they believe will stand us in good stead.
