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, delegates can choose to attend a range of creative and imaginative sessions which aim to make effective use of Northampton’s unique and innovative space in the following formats:

  • 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!

Please bring your own water bottle to the conference. Our hosts at the University of Northampton will keep you topped up with water, but won’t be using any single-use plastic bottles. Glassware will be provided for those who do not have their own bottle.

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.
