University of Kent, 11-12th January 2018
The first of its kind in the country, this learning and teaching forum will radically re-address and re-think humanities teaching in higher education. This two day interdisciplinary forum will bring together lecturers from various stages of their careers to critically reflect on current practice, and propose innovative and experimental new approaches to teaching in the 21st century.
Although pedagogical theory has undergone significant transformation in past decades, this is rarely enacted in either the lecture theatre or the seminar room. This forum seeks to remedy this division, by bringing together education specialists and lecturers to discuss pedagogical theory and praxis, as well as introduce new and exciting teaching and learning possibilities.
The forum will be highly participative, promoting the dissemination and exchange of ideas in a variety of formats. Our aspiration for the event is to inject radical new imagination and tenacity into humanities teaching in HE. It will not take a traditional conference format, as all forum participants will actively engage in activities, workshops and discussions.
