Our two-day teaching and learning event is always a great opportunity for all members of Essex’s community who deliver and support our education  to get together and share good practice, listen to insights from invited external speakers and find inspiration for their continued work.

This year’s conference takes for its theme ‘Embedding Equality and Diversity in Essex Education‘.

This year we are delighted to have Professor Penny Jane Burke as our keynote speaker. Penny is Professor of Education at the University of Roehampton, London; Global Innovation Chair of Equity & Co-Director of the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education at the University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia; and Director of the Paulo Freire Institute-UK (PFI-UK) . She will take ‘Teaching inclusively’ as the topic for her keynote lecture. She will then lead a seminar on ‘Creating inclusive curricula’. Day 1 will continue with a session focusing on enhancing the student experience and close with a roundtable discussion focusing on the opportunities and challenges that face us as we seek to embed values and practices aligned with equality and diversity into our teaching and learning support.

Day 2 will feature sessions on teaching first year students and reviewing our first-year curricula in the morning, and the afternoon will form an induction for this year’s cohort of participants for our Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education Practice (PG CHEP).
