Thanks to everyone for coming to our 8th LSBM Teaching and Learning Conference yesterday!

The fun kicked-off early on Tuesday 10 July 2018, and ended with a drinks reception at the end of the day.  

The theme of this year's conference was, 'Beyond metrics: Measuring the immeasurable in Higher Education'.

(Update - 16th July 2018 - Read my write-up of the event in the July blog post! - LSBM Teaching and Learning Conference 2018 – Beyond Metrics!)

Thanks to all the speakers, students and those who made this event possible. Getting a conference organised is challenging work and there is plenty that goes on behind the scenes to make them work seamlessly!

Thanks also to all the staff at the venue and the caterers for the great food! As well as Kopland & Miller for keeping everyone entertained over lunch!

Thanks also to the Learn Tech Team for ably working to make sure all the 'IT Magic' happened.

And thanks to all the attendees for coming along to support the event.

You are great, and we hope to see you back next year!

But for now, I'll leave the last word of thanks with our Head of Quality, Maria Jackson:

"A brilliant conference thanks to Geraldine, Nick, Sarah, Cal and our wonderful (as ever) students.  This year more than last, the connectivity between a number of sessions was really strong.  I kept hearing empathy pop up either explicitly or implicitly in all the sessions, and our attendees were genuinely blown away by the conference booklet – all thanks to Jennicka."
