Evaluate & Improve: Investigating Lecturers' Teaching in the arts and
humanities including an exhibition of virtual learning environments.
The Humanities and Arts higher education Network's 5th anniversary
conference will be held on the 9th October, 1999 at the Open University,
Evaluate & Improve will be a one-day conference which will focus on Arts and
Humanities higher education. Dr Paul Clark, the newly appointed chief
executive of the Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education
(ILT), will give the keynote address.
Evaluate & Improve has been chosen as the conference theme because of the
ILT's emphasis on evidence-based good practice. We would like to invite
papers that address how we can evaluate our teaching practices, and improve
them in ways that help our students learn. In particular, we hope to
address the following issues:
* the evaluation of classroom teaching [staff/students on staff performance]
* the evaluation of multimedia/online teaching to improve student learning
* personal evaluation and guidance [e.g. peer evaluation and
mentoring] to improve student learning
* the evaluation of work-based learning to improve undergraduate education
* providing evidence of improvement in teaching and learning.
Deadline for outline proposals: Friday July 16th.
The attendance fee will be £35, with a concessionary rate of £25 for members
of the Humanities and Arts higher education Network (HAN) and full-time
