Building our learning cultures: Putting the Teaching and Learning Strategy into practice

Yesterday was the 9th University of Huddersfield Teaching and Learning Conference, we had a serious number of colleagues booked to attend (about 175). Every year the Teaching and Learning Institute team, the staff development group and a steering group with representation from all the Schools in the University have the responsibility of developing this event where colleagues can network, share practice and learn about what is happening across the University.

The day went really well and this was down to all the planning, checking and double-checking of sessions, rooms, food, booking and all those details that go into making a successful event.

Professor Tim Thornton opened the conference by talking about the many achievements in teaching and learning that we have seen this past academic year.
