Aberystwyth University Annual Learning and Teaching Conference

We would like to invite you to this year’s Annual Learning and Teaching Conference, 29 June – 2 July 2021. The theme of this year's conference, Improvisation within Constraint: Reshaping a Learning Community in a Time of Change, aims to reflect the commitment that AU staff have to enhance the student learning experience. This year's conference will be held online via MS Teams (the Welsh session will be held over Zoom).

You can view the full programme and register for the conference online.

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a session through the medium of Welsh at this year's conference on Thursday afternoon (1 July) which we will be providing simultaneous translation for. The session will include a workshop by our third guest speaker, Dr Dyddgu Hywel (senior lecturer in Education at Cardiff Metropolitan University) and a presentation by Jonathan Fry, Nerys Fuller and Dafydd Morse on insights into good practice at Aberystwyth Business School.

Dyddgu’s workshop will focus on prioritizing the health and well-being of staff. The workshop will benefit all academic staff at the university, to identify effective ways of protecting their personal health and well-being, as well as providing pastoral care for all students.

Workshop objectives:

  • An opportunity to reflect on your personal health and well-being
  • Consider the right balance between everyday life and work pressures
  • Identify the role of educators in student health and well-being
  • Identify personal stress management, attitude and positive thinking
  • Adopt time management and prioritization
  • Promote Welsh-language resources for effective relaxation and reflection

This specific session will be through the medium of Welsh and we will be providing simultaneous translation. You can book a place by completing this online form.
