The Independent Institute of Education (The IIE) are excited to bring together academics, educators, scholars, and researchers from around the world to discuss the latest trends and innovations in teaching and learning in higher education.

The higher education landscape is constantly changing, driven by new technological developments and evolving societal needs.

This conference will provide a platform for participants to share their research, insights, and best practices on a wide range of topics related to teaching and learning in higher education, including:

  • The use of technology in teaching and learning
  • Active learning and student engagement
  • Assessment and feedback
