Building on last year’s successful conference, which for the first time combined learning, teaching and research in line with UWS’ Corporate Strategy, the event will focus on four key themes: assessment and feedback, digital learning, research-informed teaching and meeting the societal challenges of health, society and sustainability.
Postgraduate and doctoral research students will play an integral part in the busy event, with some of the University’s full-time research students delivering presentations for Three Minute Thesis, an academic competition originally developed by the University of Queensland, Australia. The winning entrant will be given the chance to progress to the UK finals hosted by Vitae.
The conference will also showcase some of the initiatives in teaching, learning and research carried out at the University, all organised by UWS BA Events students as part of their course work – a prime example of how UWS focuses on producing work-ready, successful graduates.
Lanarkshire Campus recently won a Guardian University Award recognising the most sustainable and inspiring higher education building in the UK. The culmination of a two-year project and £110 million investment, UWS Lanarkshire opened its doors to staff and students in the summer of 2018 and since then has represented a step-change in the delivery of higher education in the UK.
