evasys Supports the AdvanceHE Teaching and Learning Conference 2021

evasys is thrilled to support the upcoming Teaching and Learning Conference, organised by AdvanceHE and attracting delegates from the UK and overseas.

Taking place over three days between 6th and 8th July 2021, the overarching theme of the conference is Teaching in the Spotlight: What is the Future for HE Curricula?

The impact of the pandemic on teaching and learning

As outlined in the conference’s event page, there have been some high-impact consequences on teaching and learning as a result of the pandemic:

  • A rapid shift to fully virtual teaching in early 2020

  • A change in perceived value for students now compared to pre-pandemic

  • An impact on required physical elements of a course, ie, fieldwork or lab sessions

  • A hurried change in assessment methods and engagement strategies

  • A challenge to how the curriculum supports equality, inclusion and diversity in a virtual world

These consequences lead to an ongoing discussion around the future for HE curricula, digital delivery, course content and workforce skills within the sector – all of which are topics for discussion at the conference.

Aims of the Teaching and Learning Conference

Under the banner theme of Teaching in the Spotlight: What is the Future for HE Curricula, the conference aims to:

  • Create space for delegates to engage in creative thinking around teaching and learning with a view to continuous curriculum enhancement and innovation

  • Increase knowledge and confidence of delegates to continue to develop and improve their teaching practice and have a positive impact on the success of their students

  • Engage with leaders and influencers from across the HE sector who share a passion for teaching and learning that increases student success

  • Examine how curriculum design can positively advance inclusion and equality

Improvement to teaching and learning is one of the key benefits realised by use of the evasys survey and module evaluation solution, with institutions such as Letterkenny Institute of Technology, London Metropolitan University and City, University of London utilising the software to increase academic and student engagement and close the student feedback loop at module level.
