The Students at the Heart Conference team is working to deliver a cross-university event that will bring together the best of the LJMU Teaching & Learning Conference and Professional Services Conference. Apart from the keynote sessions, the whole event will be in the Student Life Building, providing a great opportunity to see what a fantastic resource that our new building provides for students and staff. In addition to sessions delivered by LJMU staff, students and partners, we are planning a number of additional activities. These will include exhibition and demonstration stands where teams can explain their services or showcase new approaches, as well as a range of International Student related stalls.
The Conference is themed around the four new LJMU Values, which potential contributors should use as a guide to focus their sessions. This will provide the opportunity for the Conference to address issues that matter to everyone in the LJMU community.
- Student Focused - student-centred approaches to teaching or assessment, as well as services and initiatives that are student facing;
- Inclusive – collaborative work across departments, or that champion diversity in teaching, curriculum or the wider university experience
- Community – projects that link with external partners/agencies and the wider local community;
- Courageous - examples of bold and independent thinking and application of new ideas
Student Experience Proceedings collates the institutional level events and conferences organised by LJMU. This includes the annual LJMU conference which explores different themes related to the student experience. The proceedings aim to help archive the organisations research and practice in this area.
