View our 3 Rivers Programme

In it’s 11th year, this regional conference builds upon the success of previous partnership events held by the region’s Universities (Teesside, Northumbria, Sunderland, Durham & Newcastle).

The aims of the North East Regional L&T Conference are to:

  • develop the regional understanding of key issues in Learning & Teaching in Higher Education
  • share effective learning and teaching practices
  • draw new people into our Learning & Teaching support networks and providing a networking opportunity

Through the conference we encourage all staff involved in teaching and/ or supporting learning in their institutions to explore opportunities to develop their teaching practice and contribute to a range of discussions. This event also welcomes others involved in L&T related research projects in their institutions, such as postgraduate researchers and undergraduate students.

This year’s Keynote speaker is Jonathan Worth, Associate Senior Researcher at Open Lab, Newcastle. Jonathan’s keynote is entitled:

“Reconnecting in Liminal Spaces: Ten years of Open Learning”


Registration for this year’s conference has closed.

The Three Rivers Consortium aims to provide allocated spaces for each of the five regional universities. In order to maintain this structure, we are using a university-specific waiting list for bookings. This is to promote broad representation across the universities in line with the consortium’s core values.

If there is an excess of people on the waiting list, names will be randomly selected
