Episode 022: Learning and Teaching Conference 2022 Special

Transcript available here

Hello and welcome to episode 22 of the Learning & Teaching @ Newcastle University podcast.

We look back at our 2022 Learning & Teaching Conference that took place on the 31st of March 2022.

The conference, titled ‘Education for All: Learning Together’ was a chance to bring colleagues and students together and talk about learning, teaching & education going forward and what things we can learn from a tumultuous couple of years.

Before the conference, we checked in with Pro-Vice-Chancellor Education Tom Ward who shares why he feels the conference is so important. He also picked out some of some of the key things he looked forward to such as Student Wellbeing and assessment design.

We then spoke with the Prof Paul Ashwin, just after finishing his Keynote address that posed the question ‘What is an Education For’. Paul gives us some behind-the-scenes insights into the process that goes into preparing a delivering a Keynote, and how these events help his research.

We also caught up with a few colleagues of the conference, who explained what the conference means to them.

Recordings of the presentations and lightning talks are now available to view via ReCap:
