Learning and Teaching Symposium

18 April 2018 - Eastern Gateway

The theme for this year was Inclusion and Engagement.

We were joined by two keynote speakers - Dr Andy Pitchford, Head of Learning and Teaching at the University of Bath, and Dr Jo Hendy, Principal Lecturer, Learning and Teaching Unit at Cardiff Metropolitan University. They gave their insights on “How can we use the structure and culture of the curriculum to promote student health and wellbeing.” They used Lizzio’s work on student engagement to argue that an active, inclusive curriculum is most likely to promote the wellbeing of its participants and to foster belonging, purpose and identity with examples from the fields of physical activity and sport to show how such a curriculum can be constructed.
