Active Learning Conference

All together - Active Inclusive Learning

Postponed to early 2021, ARU Cambridge

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we’ve decided to postpone the fourth national Active Learning Conference, sponsored by Echo360 and Talis Ellevate, to 2021. We're currently considering different options for running this event and will update this page with the latest information as it is confirmed.

This two-day event will start with an afternoon of masterclasses and informal networking dinner, followed by a day of keynotes and sessions to consider the practice, research and leadership of active, collaborative and inclusive learning.

Anglia Ruskin University is keen to engage you in developing a shared understanding and commitment to active learning. Join us to explore how we can inspire and challenge our students by promoting rich and inclusive learning experiences.

Call for proposals

In advance of the Active Learning Conference in 2021, we will invite you to submit a proposal to discuss your practice, research and/or leadership as part of the Conference day to stimulate discussion and action. Our focus is designing active learning, innovative pedagogies and curriculum design, leading change and researching active learning. Read more
