Why Attend TLC?


Why Attend The Teaching & Learning Conference 2019?

TLC is where education professionals gather to make change happen. Great minds in teaching and learning meet to exchange ideas, share best practices, and address today’s most pressing educational challenges. Join us for three days of informative sessions and non-stop networking.

There are many good reasons to attend TLC: from hearing from the Blackboard Leadership and the Product Management Team to sharing your milestones and successes, you will find many opportunities to learn, discover and exchange ideas, investing in your personal development. Your institution will benefit too when you return from Northumbria with a wealth of knowledge and best practice to apply.

What’s In It For Me?

Something for everyone

No matter what your role, TLC delivers sessions relevant to you and your role.

Learn how Blackboard is committed to supporting your institution’s pedagogical innovations, strategies and success, enhancing student outcomes, and improving return on your investment through the deployment of strategic services, technologies, and use of data. 

With over 50 sessions dedicated to the most pressing challenges you are facing, we’ll be sharing “from-the-classroom” solutions and delivering the technical know-how you need to do your job even better. Moreover, this year will see the return of our Knowledge Bar, Lightning Talks and UX Lab where you can have one-on-one conversations with product experts and experience hands-on demos.

Explore the latest in Blackboard’s solutions

Speak one-on-one with product experts and demo our solutions designed to simplify teaching and learning experiences.

Connect with hundreds of like-minded attendees and product experts. Exchange best practices and ideas and strategies, not only business cards.

Students now more than ever require that institutions demonstrate flexibility and help them achieve successful learning outcomes. All TLC sessions and networking opportunities provide you with the tools to support the entire student lifecycle from enrolment through course and program completion.

Share best practices

There are many ways to share best practices at TLC, from the multiple networking opportunities we facilitate with like-minded delegates to presenting your own findings as one of our speakers in our ‘call for presentations’. 

You will be surrounded by hundreds of like-minded individuals who have all found the best way to access our products and solutions.  Would you like to be a part of the narrative at TLC19 with your solutions and sharing best practices with others? 

 Keep up to date with our latest news and you’ll be first to hear when we put the call out for presentations.
