Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching

Learning and Teaching Conference

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.



 2019:  "USW, an engaging University”

The 2019 USW Learning and Teaching conference had an overarching theme of Engagement:

  • Community engagement  - at local, national and international levels;
  • Student engagement  - for example, in creation of curricula, projects and use of technology;  
  • Stakeholder engagement -  with businesses, USWSU;
  • Collegiate engagement – examples of working with colleagues that take an inter/transdisciplinary approach.

2018 Conference

The Learning & Teaching Conference 2018 was held at Treforest Conference Centre on June 29th 2018.


“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.
