SOLSTICE and CLT Conference

We are delighted to return to a face-to-face conference and look forward to welcoming you to our award-winning campus on Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th June for the 2022 SOLSTICE and CLT Conference.  This well-established international conference provides a fantastic professional development and networking opportunity.  The conference includes guest speakers, presentations and workshops, with time for conversations with existing and new contacts working in higher education.  Many delegates choose to attend the SOLSTICE and CLT Conference every year.  We look forward to seeing familiar faces again and also welcoming those joining us for the first time.

The SOLSTICE conference focusses on Technology Enhanced Learning and the CLT (Centre for Learning and Teaching) conference focusses on Teaching and Learning in higher education.  The conference fee covers both of these strands.  They will run as parallel strands across the two days and delegates can choose which sessions they want to attend.  Any resources shared by facilitators will be made available to all attending delegates.  The conference encompasses a wide-range of themes to ensure an interesting and vibrant conference that will be useful to all those working in higher education.
