The purpose of Rich Exchanges is to bring together colleagues and students from across the University, providing opportunities to share, reflect and discuss examples of best practice.

This is delivered via:

  • Learning and Teaching Conferences- these themed conferences are currently held twice a year and feature brief presentations from staff and students, with a key note speech delivered by an external guest.
  • Seminars- Presenters from the conference are given the opportunity to host hour long seminars in order to expand on the topic their covered in their presentation. More information can be found below.
  • Idea of the month- Anyone can submit an example of good practice in the form of a written article which is published monthly in WLV Insider and the Rich Exchanges webpage.

Summer Conference

The Rich Exchanges Summer conference took place on Tuesday 21st July.

The theme was 'Group Work and Team Based Learning'. You can view the programme and presentations here.

Details of our next conference will be published here in the coming months.

Autumn Conference

Rich Exchanges Autumn Conferences began in December 2014. Like the summer conference, these are themed and feature presentations from students and staff and the key note speech is delivered by an external guest. The key note speaker at the autumn 2014 conference was Professor Mark Russell, Director of Technology Enhanced Learning and Head of the Centre for Technology-Enhanced Learning, Kings College, London.

Monthly Seminars

Rich Exchanges seminars are held monthly and are hosted by our previous conference presenters. Each seminar gives conference presenters the opportunity to explore their topic in greater depth with a smaller audience.

Seminars take place one Wednesday every month and staff can book their place via the Staff Development Unit webpages under 'Learning & Teaching'. Further information about the next Rich Exchanges Seminar can be found below.
