Whilst we would particularly like to encourage contributions related to the fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), proposals from other LSP fields are also welcome. Contributions may focus on, but are not limited to, the following LSP-related themes:

 Teaching practice & methodology

  • Embedding LSP elements in general/multidisciplinary courses
  • Developing students’ skills
  • Curriculum design
  • Assessment
  • ICT and innovation
  • Teacher’s role and skills

The conference will take place over one day on Friday 8th September 2023. There will be a small fee (to be confirmed) which will include lunch and refreshments.

Further information regarding registration, alongside a provisional programme, will be circulated by email and posted on this website around April.

We are looking forward to hearing from you and receiving your proposals.
