Learning & Teaching Day @ UCS

Last week, UCS held its annual Learning & Teaching day in Ipswich. It was a fantastic opportunity for all members of staff – academic and professional alike – to get together and share good practice.

We had a fantastic first keynote speaker, Anthony Seldon, who spoke about the importance of connecting academic education with mental health and wellbeing, and talked about using digital technology to encourage inclusivity.

Christine Hockings also spoke, on student perspectives and experiences on independent learning, and the importance of creating a culture of independent learning among the student body.

There were a number of informative and interesting workshops, on inclusive learning and teaching, assessment and feedback for learning (facilitated by Will Thomas), towards graduate employability, and on scholarly and research-oriented teaching (facilitated by David Gill).

Laura Locke and Sarah Harris presented their excellent work on work-based learning within the Events and Tourism Management routes, and Suzanne Nolan presented the Graduate+ Programme.


Here at the Suffolk Business School, we would like to thank Christine Smith and her team for all their hard work in putting together another thoroughly successful event. We look forward to next years!
