The Brookes Learning and Teaching Conference is a place where innovation, creativity and alternative perspectives on teaching are openly exchanged. It is both a conference and an exhibition of current projects.
The conference is open to the Brookes learning community, and explicitly welcomes student and learning support staff involvement.
In 1993 the first Improving Student Learning Symposium was held at Warwick University in the UK. From then until its end in 2012 it became an established event on the international calendar, with up to 200 participants from over 15 countries at each conference. The major aim of the Improving Student Learning Symposia was to provide a forum which brought together those who are primarily researchers into learning in higher education and those who are primarily practitioners concerned more pragmatically with improving their practice, but from whichever starting point, papers were only accepted if they take a sufficiently scholarly, research-based approach.
CCI is a group of researchers and educators committed to research, cross-institutional dialogue and policy change within four key areas of: internationalising the curriculum for all; critical clarification and problematisation of the complex concepts of internationalisation and global citizenship; the embedding of responsible and ethical engagement with social and environmental issues in the graduate attribute of global citizenship; and developing a research community that shares and develops good practice.
