UAL Education Conference 2021 online
For ExEd21 (6th and 7th July) we invite staff to contribute their own educational perspectives for an unthemed Open Call.
Deadline for submitting a proposal is 4th May 2021
This year has been an extraordinary challenge. We have collaborated more than ever before across role boundaries and hierarchies. There is renewed awareness of structural and systemic inequality. The lived experiences of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) staff and students, environmental thresholds, and not least, the COVID pandemic has led to many of us taking more individual, and collaborative, institutional, responsibility.
The conference is online and has been extended to two (shorter) days to make the experience more manageable for more staff. To encourage wider educational and transformational debate, the title and focus of the Conference has changed from ‘Learning and Teaching’ to ‘Education’.
There will now be an annual appearance from Arts’ Students Union who will have a strand of workshops/talks looking at the student experience from the student perspective of academic representation, campaigns, and services they provide for their members.
