“Going for Gold” – Enriching Student Learning Through the 2012 Games

9th November 2010, St. Hugh’s College, Oxford

With the 2012 Games now fast approaching, this year’s conference will explore opportunities presented by the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to re-vitalise curricula to enhance student learning opportunities and experiences, and to encourage student engagement with learning. Keynote speakers are currently being confirmed and they will be chosen to reflect different perspectives of the Games which can stimulate developmental initiatives, for example:

  • “Capturing Olympic and Paralympic Values in the Curriculum”
  • “Critical examination of the Olympic Legacies aspired to by the Games organisers – their relevance in the HLST group of subjects and in HE generally”
  • “Olympic and Paralympic Research and its implications for curriculum development”

Workshop sessions will provide opportunities to share developmental initiatives in learning, teaching and assessment in which the Games can be used to revitalise the learning experience of students and to engage them with learning. There will also be a display of posters describing further work in this area its impact.
