Call for Contributions

 

The Manchester Metropolitan University Summer Festival of Learning and Teaching takes place from June 12 – 21, 2019. The Festival gives MMU staff and students an opportunity to demonstrate their own good practice, find out more about interesting approaches and resources used at MMU and in other institutions and to collaborate with colleagues both at MMU and internationally. 

There will be several events offered each day during the festival, at both the All Saints and Crewe campuses. The call for contributions is now open and we would like to encourage you to contribute to the Festival. We’re looking for short sessions which will enable participants to either:

  1. Give people an idea or discuss a hot topic in a World Cafe style session; you’ll have ten minutes to make a pitch to a small group, and then they will move on, and you will get another group. This could be a taster for a longer workshop or research presentation
    or
  2. Find out how to do something you can do: make formative assessment work well, get groups to work together effectively, use Lego in teaching, or use an innovative form of summative assessment, for instance – we’re looking for practical sessions lasting one or two hours here
    or
  3. Learn about a learning, teaching or assessment idea you’ve implemented successfully and evaluated – we’re looking for short research presentations, preferably around 10-15 minutes, though we’ll have spaces for very short Pecha Kucha style sessions, and some longer ones if appropriate

Please use the form below to propose your session or request something of interest – we’ll try to oblige. You could also suggest an external speaker for us to invite using the same form.

Please submit your proposal by 25 February 2019. Feedback will be provided as soon as possible after this date.
