SEDA Spring Teaching, Learning and Assessment Conference 2010
Communities of Learning
6-7 May 2010
Park Plaza Hotel, Leeds
This year the SEDA Conference will explore and debate the issues around communities of learning. In doing so it will touch upon some key topics in staff and educational development and learning and teaching with regard to the need to nurture communities, reflection on existing communities and how to respond in an ever changing world to the multifarious demands on academics in HE and FE. What is the nature of the communities that we are wishing to create and support? What are the tensions inherent in fostering such communities? What is the nature of existing communities? How can we engage different communities?
