CIHE Annual Conference 2019 'Creative Approaches to Pedagogic Research'

The Centre for Innovation in Higher Education (CIHE) held our first annual conference 'Creative Approaches to Pedagogic Research' on 10 July 2019 – an opportunity to share and learn about current and innovative approaches to research-informed teaching and learning.

Our keynote speakers were Prof Pauline Kneale (University of Plymouth) and Prof Mike Sharples (Open University), both of whom are Honorary Visiting Professors at CIHE. We also hosted two workshops from Dr Mark J.P. Kerrigan (Plymouth College of Art, Honorary Visiting Fellow at CIHE) and Prof Gina Wisker (University of Brighton).

Here you can take a look at the resources from the keynotes and presentations.
