Learning & Teaching Conference 2019 - Welcome photo


The annual University of Edinburgh Learning and Teaching Conference brings together staff and students across the University to celebrate and share good practice and innovation in learning and teaching. 

We are delighted to be working to make the conference a fully online experience and this year's conference theme is 'Curriculum Futures'.

We are in the final stages of preparing the schedule and the opening session will begin on 16 June.  Subsequent themed days (taking place on the 18, 23 and 25 June) will be as follows:

  • Inclusion and Co-Creation
  • Curriculum Design and Review
  • The Digital Curriculum

There will also be College lightening talk sessions taking place. 

In addition to live sessions, we are developing a website specifically for the conference, where recordings, posters and other resources will be curated.  This will provide access for colleagues and students during and beyond the conference.

In the meantime, if you have any queries at all, please contact
