Teaching Fellows Conference 2016

Welcome to the Teaching Fellows Conference, taking place at Craiglockhart on Thursday 7 January 2016. After a very successful revival in January 2015, the Conference has continued a tradition of giving Edinburgh Napier staff a chance to meet, discuss ideas, present their work under different streams, and celebrate innovation in teaching and supporting learning.

We are looking forward to the 2016 conference and registration via HR Connect is now open. Once you have registered you can use this site to find out about the parallel sessions. Please head to our Eventbrite page to sign up to them in advance.

There were two options for contributions.

Presentation: Sessions are 25 minutes long.  The presentation should be a maximum of 15 minutes, allowing at least 10 minutes for questions and discussion.
Poster: Posters will be displayed in the breakout room during coffee and lunch breaks

Those submitting a presentation proposal were required to provide an abstract of up to 500 words in length. (Please note that they did not need to provide an abstract if submitting a poster.)

The Conference is based around three streams:

Stream A: Pedagogic research: Contributions to this stream should be innovative and with a clear impact for the educational community. Your research should be underpinned by a robust theoretical background and should provide appropriate qualitative and/or quantitative analysis and findings that derive into one (or several) well supported conclusion(s).
Stream B: Sharing good practice: This stream provides the opportunity for you to share your innovative practice in either teaching or supporting student learning. Contributions should be practically focused, but some academic underpinning is expected. You should place particular focus on the impact of your work and its potential transferability to other contexts, including the lessons that others can learn.
Stream C: Research projects from the PGCert TLHE / MSc BOE: Contributions to this stream should have been submitted as part of the assessment on either of these programmes. You should include an element of reflection on your experiences of conducting the research.
