  Teaching History in Higher Education: the 14th annual Higher Education
  Academy Teaching and Learning Conference 2012

  * *Date: *11 Sep 2012 - 12 Sep 2012
  * *Location/venue: *Senate House Malet Street London, WC1E 7HU

Conference partner: The Institute of Historical Research, School of 
Advanced Studies, University of London.

This year, the Higher Education Academy's annual teaching and learning 
conference on history in higher education will be held in partnership 
with the Institute of Historical Research in Senate House, London. 
Scholars are more aware than ever before of the symbiosis between 
historical research and their teaching. They are also becoming more 
engaged with the ways in which pedagogic research, innovation and theory 
can inform, enhance and support both the student and staff experience. 
More generally, higher education is undergoing transformational change 
in the UK and elsewhere. Students' aims and expectations of their 
course, institution and learning experience are all rising and the 
various, if contentious, measures of excellence in teaching, learning 
and educational outcomes are informing their institutional choices.
