#TL21ENLIGHT is fully booked. Join our live-stream on 18 November!

On the 18th and 19th of November Ghent University hosts the 1st ENLIGHT Teaching and Learning conference. The central theme is 'Learning from and with each other – peer learning across all levels of the university'. The theme obviously refers to the educational methods used in our courses and programmes, but it also points to the importance of peer learning among teachers. Our conference marks the beginning of a teaching and learning community to empower our ENLIGHT teachers and students.

Our conference hosts over 50 sessions with more than 139 individual speakers from all ENLIGHT partner universities: professors, teaching experts, practicians, educational researchers and last but not least our students.  During the conference we will highlight innovative pedagogical approaches and learning practices. On occasion of our first Teaching and Learning Awards Ceremony we will reveal all nominees and the first ENLIGHT award winning course for 2021.

All information about the conference sessions and speakers is available via
