    Ideas, experience and research shared at sixth Harper Adams Learning and Teaching conference

    14 September 2022

    The return of the Harper Adams Learning and Teaching conference has seen more than 130 people come together to share ideas, experiences and research.

    The conference, the sixth of its kind, not only included a wide range of contributions from Harper Adams staff and students, but also presentations from external experts – including staff from University of Birmingham’s Higher Education Futures Institute, the University of Sussex and Staffordshire University, from technology company PebblePad and from Advance HE. 

    Harper Adams Director of Education, Professor Lydia Arnold, said: “The conference provides a unique space for us to hear about techniques and innovations in teaching from across the sector. It was especially pleasing to have attendance from a number of our own students who collaborated with staff to stimulate discussion and reflection.

    “Sessions focused on a range of key issues including assessment, student welfare, active learning, international student experiences, student research, and placement. The number of staff who joined the day and the quality of the talks, workshops and posters, really emphasises the commitment of this university to the student experience -  staff are always invested in developing their teaching and support practices for the benefit of our student body.

    “It’s fantastic that our Students Union are so involved in the day too - at lunchtime, the SU President along with our Vice Chancellor, presented our Student Voice Awards.

    “These annual awards are offered by the Students' Union to recognise staff who have been nominated by students for their outstanding contribution.”

    Staff receiving the awards were presented with a trophy and a locally sourced food hamper as a token of appreciation from the student body.
