Inaugural lecture by Professor Alison Halstead, Pro-Vice Chancellor Learning and Teaching innovation
Tuesday 16 March at 6:30pm
This lecture is centred around a personal reflection of a 25-year experience of Higher Education in the UK; the journey begins with the expectations of an undergraduate scholarship student at Imperial College in the 1970s and continues to the aspirations of a PVC for Learning and Teaching Innovation at Aston University in 2010.
The lecture will travel through time, looking at the development of our knowledge, of how people learn and at the technological changes that have brought additional tools to enhance learning. It will highlight some of the research evidence that provides an insight into how we can optimise learning effectiveness and efficiency for ourselves and for the experience of our students.
The conclusion will give consideration to some of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for Aston to become an inspirational learning community.
This lecture is free to attend and open to all.
When: Tuesday 16 March at 6.30pm (tea and coffee from 6pm)
Where: Sumpner Lecture Theatre
A buffet will follow the lecture.
