ARU to host national Active Learning Conference: Call for proposals

Published: 27 February 2020 at 13:23

The fourth Active Learning Conference is the foremost opportunity for colleagues working in academia and professional services to consider and develop their practice, research and leadership for active, collaborative and inclusive learning.

ARU will host the two-day event on Monday 7 September and Tuesday 8 September in Cambridge for over 150 national and international delegates to attend an afternoon of masterclasses, networking dinner and Conference day keynote and active learning sessions. 

We invite you to submit a proposal to discuss your work on the Conference day (8 September) that will engage delegates and contribute to their understanding and professional development. More details and suggested session themes, formats and guidance on how to submit your proposal are available at aru.ac.uk/alc 

Says Andrew Middleton, Deputy Head of Anglia Learning & Teaching, ARU:
“Active learning embraces a wide range of practices and interests. As at previous Active Learning Conferences, we’re keen to bring together the wealth of expertise, good practice, strategy, and skills, that exist in the sector to develop a shared understanding and commitment to active inclusive learning. 
“Experience at ARU, through the development and implementation of our Active Curriculum Framework, suggests that an inspiring and challenging active learning environment creates a rich and inclusive student experience – one that stimulates engagement and promotes employability.
“We’ll explore key themes around active inclusive learning; from course design, how we develop our skills to put active learning into practice, how we are innovating, and what our students think about it. This is a vibrant area for higher education in the ‘post digital’ age.”
