Learning and Teaching Conference 2018

‘Student Success – from conversation to transformation’

Sheffield Hallam University’s annual Learning and Teaching Conference (SHULT18) will take place on
10th and 11th July 2018 at City Campus – Charles Street and the recently refurbished Arundel Gate Court.

SHULT18 aims  to provide opportunities for staff to engage in strategic conversations around the student journey to, through and out of Higher Education with discussions centering on three main tracks:

  • Student retention or persistence – and the range of factors that can enhance students’ timely degree completion.
  • Student attainment which pertains to the ways in which all students – regardless of background, are empowered to do well academically.
  • Student outcomes which refer to the educational, societal and life effects that are the end result of the student journey through higher education.

The conference welcomes delegates from a wide range of higher education backgrounds, including; senior management, institutional researchers, planners, educational developers, pedagogic researchers, and professional/managerial service colleagues.

The annual Learning and Teaching conference is hosted by the Directorate of Learning Enhancement and Academic Development (LEAD) at Sheffield Hallam University and our programme will include:


  • Dr Gurnam Singh (NTF), Principal Lecturer in Social Work at Coventry University and visiting professor at Chester University
  • Dr Sam Grogan, Pro Vice Chancellor for Student Experience at the University of Salford, and Director of the Teaching Excellence Alliance
