Students tell us they want more contact – what do they do with it? Learners have mobile devices, pen and paper are less visible, but how are the devices being used for learning? With the new cascade/curriculum design discussions suggesting students start with more contact to develop skills for more independent learning later in their study: this session involves talking with colleagues about how we encourage student learning in and out of class. Particular focus on note-taking, active reading, engagement with text, blogging, revision and a deeper engagement with what learners study.

First Ever Business School Learning and Teaching Conference 8th July 2016
This year we held the inaugural Brighton Business School Learning and Teaching Conference and the atmosphere couldn’t have been better.
It was welcomed as an opportunity for our colleagues to share their knowledge, research, ideas and achievements.
The day was opened by a speech from the Director of the Business School, Aidan Berry, titled “Open for business, open to business” which highlighted the upcoming plans and design for the new Business School set to open in 2019. This was followed by the key note speech “Changing landscapes – Observations on the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), assessment and feedback practices & professionalism” by Sid Hayes, Director of Education, School of Social Sciences.
Both of these will be available to watch on the blog soon.
And there was the launch of the Brighton Business School Teaching Excellence Award 2017 with a £1000 prize for the winner.
There is now a date set for next year’s Brighton Business School Learning and Teaching Conference 2017:
