Festival of Learning 2019

A highlights video of the Festival of Learning 2019

The Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) Festival of Learning 2019!

Monday 1st July 2019, Devonshire Dome

This year, the University of Derby’s annual Learning and Teaching Conference evolved to embody a festival spirit, where diverse approaches of learning and teaching brilliance were captured in a celebratory and inspirational event, modelling excellent practice across our University.

The Festival was held at our historic Buxton campus, offering colleagues the opportunity to demonstrate, celebrate and share evidence of their pedagogic practice, pedagogic research and ongoing professional development in learning and teaching.

Live entertainment was featured on the Dome Floor and with forty exciting activities taking place over nine stages (please see our Festival of Learning stage line-ups overview) there was something for everybody. Delegates could review the parallel session details to tailor their personal Festival experience! 

The delegate welcome pack and a photo album of the day available for review.
