The major aim of the Symposium is to provide a forum which brings together those who are primarily researchers into learning in higher education and those who are primarily practitioners concerned more pragmatically with improving their practice, and encourages the sharing of scholarly work and collaborative discussion. But from whichever starting point, papers are only accepted if they take a sufficiently scholarly, research-based approach.
In 2012 we celebrate 20 years of the Improving Student Learning Symposium with a conference theme of ‘Improving student learning through research and scholarship: 20 years of ISL’ so this year we especially invite participants to submit proposals which reflect back on what we have learnt over the past two decades, or would want to claim we now understand about student learning, and the research evidence that supports it.
Some issues contributors may want to explicitly address are:
1. Teaching methods
2. Assessment methods
3. Course and programme design
4. Blended and e-learning
5. Skills development and lifelong learning
6. Graduate outcomes
8. Diversity and inclusivity
9. Supporting learners
10. Faculty development methods and/or strategies
Submissions are invited for one of four formats:
Research papers (60 mins)
Conceptual papers (60 mins)
Seminars (60 mins)
Symposia (90 mins)
