The UH Annual Learning and Teaching Conference  will be held on Thursday 5th May 2016

To build on the collegiate approach of previous conferences, and aligned with the University's ambition to be Internationally renowned as the UK's Leading Business-Facing University, this year's annual Learning and Teaching Conference theme is "Employability".

The morning session of the conference will include keynote addresses from leading Graduate Recruitment specialists and parallel strands for presentations.

The afternoon sessions will enable the discussion of employability and work-based learning, plus a plenary panel discussion made up of industry employability specialists. 

We expect that this will be a stimulating, creative and enjoyable day and we welcome your participation. The conference will be held in the Lindop building on the College Lane site. Lunch and refreshments will be provided and attendance is free.  Places can be booked via the Staff Portal.  Search: Key Word - Annual; Category - Academic Practice. 

After booking your place please complete the online pre-course questionnaire to confirm dietary and any other specific needs.  Any questions please email hrd-email@herts.ac.uk  


As part of the conference activities we would like to showcase some of the learning spaces within the University used for discipline specific teaching and skill development and hence very important for employability. Please see below for the schedule of activities on the afternoon of Wednesday 4th May to enable delegates to visit different parts of the University. We hope that staff will take the opportunity to visits parts of the University that they may have never been to before and to see some of the specialised equipment and resources.

Colleagues will then be invited to discuss what they’ve seen on the actual day of the conference.
