Transforming Curriculum: Empowering Learning for Life

With the theme, “Transforming Curriculum: Empowering Learning for Life”, the Taylor’s 11th Teaching and Learning Conference 2018 (TTLC2018) will examine key strategies for building learning institutions which are as future-capable as the graduates they develop. Education is evolving, and many institutions have set themselves a goal to prepare their learners for life.

Empowering learners for life requires a fundamental shift in designing curriculum for Higher Education focussed on broad-based education, holistic education and the development of Life Skills.  New priorities, pedagogies, technologies, spaces and assessment strategies are required to empower learners to take ownership of their learning. Creating resilient, adaptable and future-capable learners is no longer an option for Higher Education institutions as we embrace the Education 4.0 Trends.

Therefore, the future-capable institution may instead be defined by the quality and depth of the learning experience, with a clear aim to build learners with high-level capabilities needed to navigate a successful global future such as leadership, social responsibility, innovation and problem solving.

The TTLC2018’s innovative agenda is designed to “unlock” the typical conference format, and our aim is to create a space that prioritises engagement with keynotes, panelists and delegates. You can look forward to a relevant, pro-active and rewarding learning experience where peer-to-peer learning and collaboration are prevalent with experts from more than 12 countries and 30 institutions.

Our programme features sessions such as : 

  1.  Masterclass with keynote speakers
  2. Forums with representatives from different industry sectors
  3. Roundtable discussions with industry, graduates, students and academia
  4. Lightning Talks

Come join us at Taylor's 11th Teaching and Learning Conference today!
