Pre-conference masterclasses will take place on 11 September, 2–5pm.

Active learning focuses on students actively engaging in their learning through active problem-based learning, inverted or flipped classroom approaches, Team-Based Learning (TBL), SCALE-UP, and technology-enhanced active learning (TEAL). The conference is an opportunity for you to share your successful active learning practices as well as research into active learning.

The conference will link Team-Based Learning at University of Bradford, SCALE-UP at Nottingham Trent University and our own active learning practices. It is one of the seventeen projects funded by HEFCE's Catalyst Fund. Read more about the project on the Vice Chancellor's blog.

The Active Learning Conference aims to:

  • introduce active learning approaches through masterclasses
  • share good practice in using and embedding active learning approaches in the curriculum
  • provide opportunities to learn new skills and techniques.

The hashtag for the conference is #altalc.
