Details

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 theme for this year’s conference is “Learning on the Edge”, exploring the different influences that peripheral spaces: mental, digital, physical and liminal can have on learning.

 

The conference is divided into four themes; mental space, digital space, physical space and liminal space. Our conference will extend these thematic ideas using a range of traditional, unusual, peripheral and sometimes inconvenient spaces in the studios of the Abercrombie Building.

 

It will be an opportunity to experience different challenging and edgy interactions with participants. It is both a conference and an exhibition of current projects, with key note speaker Kirsti Lonka, Professor of Educational Psychology at University of Helsinki, Finland.
