Students as Partners: Linking Teaching, Research & Enterprise

On a day of record breaking temperatures (the hottest July day ever recorded), Learning Enhancement welcomed over 300 delegates to its annual Learning & Teaching Conference at the Buxton Campus.

Dr Ruth Ayres, (Dean of Learning Enhancement), Daisy Giuliano (Students’ Union President) and Jo Drummond-Child (College Lead in Learning Enhancement and Lecturer in Law) introduced the day with a University of Derby perspective on “Students as Partners at Derby”. Professor Mick Healey then gave a stimulating and interactive keynote address on “Engaging Students as Partners and Change Agents”.

New this year on the Dome floor were a series of Learning Cafés which provided an opportunity for discussions with colleagues about some of the key University pedagogic projects / themes and Learning Gallery Tours showcasing the strategic projects Learning Enhancement is leading on: Learning Spaces, Digital Literacy, Personal Tutoring, Talis Aspire Digitised Content (TADC) and the sharing and embedding of good practice and innovation in learning and teaching.

Students from Learning Enhancement’s Undergraduate Research Scholarship Scheme (URSS) displayed their research outcomes through a poster exhibition on the Dome Floor, demonstrating the variety of projects being undertaken as part of this scheme. Posters from academic staff and stands showcasing the work of UDOL and the Academic Innovation Hub were also on display.
