Call for presenters for the ALDinHE Practitioner Event on 8th December 2020

The first of our new online ALDinHE Practitioner Events will be held on Tuesday 8th December 2020.

We are looking for presenters/facilitators for these events. We are not looking for formal presentations from experts who have all the answers (although if you do have all the answers you’re particularly welcome…). Instead, the purpose of the presentations will be to stimulate discussion and share ideas and good practice, which is a feature of the regional events that colleagues most appreciated and which we want to retain. We are open to various formats for sessions, from brief lightning talks (5 minutes) through to workshops (45 minutes). We will have the option to use breakout spaces if we have large numbers of attendees. 

For information about some possible formats for your session, please see the ALDinHE Conference guide to choosing a session type

If you would like to present at the symposium, please complete this brief expression of interest form .

For a discussion about the event, or if you have suggestions for future themes, please contact the Events Working Group leads alistair.morey@kcl.ac.uk and m.mossman@leeds.ac.uk

Calling new presenters for the LD@3 20/21 Programme!

We are looking for 20-30 minute presentations on all and any aspects of learning development. This could be an opportunity to tell the community about new innovations in your teaching or practice, to test out new ideas with a receptive audience or present part of your work that may go on to publish.

Presentations will be hosted online at 3pm with opportunity for questions from participants.

If you would like to present at an LD@3 session please complete the Google form below and include an abstract of 200-250 words. We will be accepting proposals throughout the year.

Join the Events Group

As well as the annual conference, ALDinHE hosts several one-day events, known as Regional Symposia, throughout the year. These encourage the development of local communities and networks of practice, offer the opportunity to present on emerging work and provide hosts with the support necessary for them to gain experience in organising external events. Regional networking will remain one focus for this group, but the 2020 experience has demonstrated that there is both demand and capacity for national events delivered online. Therefore this group will be building upon the great success of the LD@3 workshop series developed by the Conference Committee and offering similar events throughout the year.

The new Events Working Group will also collaborate with other ALDinHE groups to offer developmental and networking opportunities for all members of the Learning Development community by bringing together groups of people with shared interests or priorities.

We are currently looking for new members who are keen on becoming more involved in developing the LD community’s events programme.

We are looking for people skilled in organisation, marketing or networking and who have the finger on the pulse of evolving issues in LD.

Broadly, responsibilities will include working with  host institutions supporting them with the planning, organisation and evaluation of a half-day or one-day events which will be hosted either online or face to face.

The initial tasks will be to:

  • Establish Terms of Reference for the working group
  • Identify new hosts for future events
  • Draw up a list principles for hosting events

If you are interested in joining this group, please contact admin@aldinhe.ac.uk
