Beltane Public Engagement Network

Beltane Twilight | Engaged Teaching and Learning

Venue to be confirmed shortly

Beltane Breakfasts and Twilights are informal meetings where people from Edinburgh’s universities can come to find out more and share information about specific public engagement topics. At this Beltane Twilight, we’re looking at engaged teaching.

For the purposes of the meeting, we’re thinking of engaged teaching as where the teaching and learning is somehow linked to interactions with communities outside the universityin question. There is often an emphasis on learning though practical experience (AKA ‘experiential learning’).

Most of Beltane’s activities look at engaged research but, given the sometimes close links between research, teaching and learning, we thought it was time to look at engaged teaching!
