ALDinHE 2024: The Learning Development Conference

Glasgow Caledonian University, the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde

7 & 11-12 June 2024

Join us for three days of stimulating discussion and inspiring sessions – both online and in-person, in the wonderful, vibrant city of Glasgow.

Every ALDinHE Conference is a special occasion, but this year we are particularly excited to announce our first collaboratively hosted event!

Our online day will be Friday, 7 June, and our in-person days will be Tuesday and Wednesday, 11-12 June, hosted jointly by Glasgow Caledonian University, the University of Glasgow, and the University of Strathclyde.

The Call for Papers for the 2024 conference is now closed.

If you are still interested in presenting to the ALDinHE community, we encourage you to consider running an LD@3 webinar.

  • Considering the position, whether strategic, policy-based, or physical (etc.) of Learning Development within institutions and/or in the wider HE sector.

2. Building inclusive Learning Development spaces:

  • Physical and/or virtual.
  • Embodied spaces.
  • Social.
