Learning & Teaching Festival

Learning & Teaching Festival


A yearly festival that celebrates our success, offering a platform to share lessons learnt. This is an inclusive event bringing together researchers, teaching practitioners, professional services and members of all GBS communities.

About

This year’s festival is hosted by SEBE (Scholarship Excellence in Business Education) and will be an opportunity to discuss effective approaches to learning and teaching by sharing research findings and best practices. The theme of the festival is Business Education without Boundaries, and it will take place online. We welcome contributions showcasing excellence and innovative practices in L&T Research or Practice.

The L&T Festival will bring together presentations showcasing best practices and innovation in teaching, as well as results of ongoing pedagogic research carried out by colleagues. The event will be enriched by keynote speakers and networking opportunities.

Informal social and wellbeing sessions

Cultural Corner

In this informal session, we will share different aspects of culture that we enjoy.  If you would like to share a piece of culture you love (up to 5 mins), please contact us at LTFcommittee@greenwich.ac.uk by 10th June. This can include but is not limited to a photo, a piece of art or music,  a piece of fiction you would like to review, a favourite recipe or game, an app you would recommend, a textile you have created or a plant you have grown.

Pet Corner

If you are an animal lover, this is the right place for you! Pets leave paw prints on our hearts. The informal session is focused on stories that show how pets have supported staff members during the pandemic and the importance they play in our life. If you have a pet, just bring your pet and story along - we would love to see your pet on camera! You can participate even if you do not have a pet.

CPD Corner

This session will include information on two professional recognition schemes: the GOLD scheme for teaching and learning which leads to a category of HEA fellowship; and the UKAT professional recognition of personal tutors.

Staff Networks

This is a drop-in session to find out about the staff networks at the University of Greenwich and how they can help you. Staff networks that will be present are BAME, Women's, LGBTQ+, Wellbeing and Disabled Staff Community.
