The theme of this year's event is 'The First-Year Experience'

It is with great pleasure that the Centre for Student Success announces the 2017 University of East London Learning and Teaching Symposium. This year’s theme is focused on 'The First-Year Experience.'

The Symposium is an opportunity to share best practices and innovative approaches to improving the experience of students in the classroom. This one-day workshop style event will provide an opportunity for all participants to replicate these approaches at their institution.
