Networks and Events

You can get involved in a variety of networks and events supported and hosted by the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit. Please see below for further information. 

Academy Forum The Aber Academy Forum is open to members of the university community: teaching staff, postgraduate tutors, administrative / support staff, and students are all welcome. The Forum provides a platform for sharing good practice in learning and teaching. Contact us to add you to the mailing list. Handouts and information about previous sessions are available under Training Resources

Annual Learning and Teaching Conference The LTEU organises the University’s annual Learning and Teaching Conference. This event is a space for staff to come together from across the University to present on innovative teaching and learning practices that they are doing. Our blog contains information on previous Learning and Teaching Conferences. 

Exemplary Course Award The aim of the AU Exemplary Course Award (ECA) is to support staff to enhance their modules on Blackboard and as a platform to share good practice. We are delighted to exhibit the winners at our annual Learning and Teaching Conference. Best practice examples and tours of modules are available on our blog. Request an ECA application pack from us if you are interested in entering the award.

Mini-conference The LTEU hosts mini-conferences in addition to the Learning and Teaching Conference. Previous Mini-conferences focused on themes such as gamification of learning and teaching with tablets. For more information on previous mini-conferences, please see our blog. Contact us if you are interested in proposing a theme for a mini-conference.

Mini-fest In addition to conferences, the LTEU also organises mini-fests; a series of sessions delivered across a week or two, focusing on a specific topic (e.g., assessment). Please keep an eye on our CPD booking page and the LTEU blog for information on future mini-fests. 

Sharing Good Practice Event This Summer Aberystwyth University will be hosting a Sharing Good Practice event, through the medium of Welsh, which will be based on the theme of Teaching Excellence.
