Discovering Teaching Excellence at Leicester Conference, 10 June 2020

This year's theme: Achieving inclusive learning environments

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have had to make the decision to postpone the conference that was scheduled for the 10th June. We do hope to be able to reschedule it and/or a range of events exploring the conference theme to later in the summer or autumn. DTEL 2020 is most definitely not ‘cancelled’ but will take place in the near future in a potentially exciting range of alternative ways.

The annual Discovering Teaching Excellence at Leicester (DTEL) Conference is a forum that brings everyone together from across the University to share, inspire and enhance teaching, learning and assessment practices.

This year’s event focuses on the important topic of ‘achieving inclusive learning environments’. Staff and students will be involved in showcasing innovative and effective methods and practices, as well as sharing findings from teaching-related research and evaluation.

The Conference theme will be addressed through the exploration of a range of topics including effective group work activities, inclusive assessment practices, building learning communities and enhancing student well-being.

The Conference will also put the theme of inclusion into practice by utilising interactive learning technologies to ensure that attendance and contribution is possible through a range of formats.

Organised by the Pro-Vice Chancellor (Education), Professor Graham Wynn, and the Leicester Learning Institute, the Conference will be hosted within the George Davies Centre, Centre for Medicine.

The Conference is open to all University of Leicester staff and students. External visitors are also warmly welcomed, though places are limited.
