Learning and Teaching Conference

USW holds regular Learning and Teaching conferences to celebrate and share the good practice in learning, teaching and assessment undertaken across the University group and its strategic partners.

After the success of the inaugural 2015 conference the event became annual and additional, specialist, conferences are also held at different points in the year for senior managers and for specific subject disciplines.


“The learning and teaching conference was truly inspirational and for many there gave an opportunity to share not just ideas but their passions. The task now is to spread the joy, and make sure we keep the dialogue going in Schools and courses, so that we keep the pot boiling around enhancement. Thanks to those staff who put the event together. It was a triumph!” – Dr Ben Calvert, Pro-Vice-Chancellor: Learning, Teaching & Student Experience.

2018 Conference – 29th June 2018 – Conference centre at Treforest

Exploring change in pedagogic practice

The 2018 USW Learning and Teaching conference this year has a general theme of change and pedagogic practice. This event is a ‘follow on’ from the Autumn Conference in 2017 where School-based pedagogic change projects were identified. Representatives from the project teams will share their current developments and thoughts on effecting change in USW. In addition, colleagues have been invited to share their own activities – whether as an individual or in teams, in exploring changes to pedagogic practice.
