Teaching and Learning Conference 2021

We are excited to announce that this year’s Teaching and Learning Conference will take place on Friday 9 July.

The full day conference will be delivered face-to-face (government guidelines permitting) as well as live streamed for everyone to view.

The conference will explore the theme of identity, asking Who Do We Want To Be?

Who Do We Want To Be?

The question of identity is as old as existence, but in the digital age it has arguably become more important than at any other time.

The higher education community is uniquely poised to consider how identity shapes the learning environment, not to mention the responsibility it has in helping to shape the identities of its learners.

This requires us to consider questions about who we are; neurologically, culturally, philosophically, administratively even. It also demands that we continue to form a vision – for learners, teachers and institutions alike – of who we want to be.

The two keynote speeches for the day will be:

Identity and Educational Neuroscience

Dr Iroise Dumontheil | Professor in Cognitive Neuroscience in the Department of Psychological Sciences | Birkbeck

Interaction and Identity

Kolarele Sonaike | Communication Skills Coach and Barrister

The event will be broacast live on Bloomsbury Radio and during lunch there will be a Lunchtime Reggae Show from Bloomsbury Insitute student Calvin Taffe (including live music and interviews).
