Join us in Northampton for three days of stimulating discussion and inspiring sessions!

This year we have three broad strands we encourage you to consider aligning with:

  • Advocacy for Learning Development
  • Creativity for change
  • Embracing diversity

The conference will offer plenty of CPD opportunities, including research & development, CeP/CeLP guidance, opportunities to learn more about ALDinHE’s work and the chance to get involved with a working group.

This year, we particularly welcome creative and imaginative proposals which aim to make effective use of Northampton’s unique and innovative space. You may choose to submit a proposal for a:

  • 60-minute workshop
  • 20-minute paper presentation
  • 5-minute lightning talk
  • Poster
  • Resource swap shop
  • Expert practitioner mini-keynote
  • World Café discussion
  • Wild Card

Northampton has redesigned itself to focus on small-group teaching.  As such, we are introducing new initiatives for 2020:

  • Expert practitioner mini-keynote on Tuesday
  • World Discussion Café forum with discussion prompts around various LD themes
  • Wild Card – we invite colleagues to submit a weird and wonderful proposal for presentation!

We will once again be opening a fee waiver scheme for those whose institutions will not fund the cost of a conference place. These will be on an application-only basis. Further details will follow separately.

The ALDinHE conference is a supportive and welcoming environment that promotes creative collaboration between learning developers and is always popular, with a regular attendance of around 150 delegates from the UK and beyond.
