The First Elkana Symposium on Reimagining Teaching and Learning is a forum that brings together faculty, doctoral students, education researchers, and practitioners at CEU and across Open Society University Network (OSUN) to share innovative and successful teaching practices, as well as to develop their own teaching skills through workshops and training sessions. The event will be hosted by the Yehuda Elkana Center for Teaching, Learning, and Higher Education Research (CEU) from June 12-14.  

 Thematic panels of the symposium will specifically focus on the following topics:  

  • Inclusive and democratic teaching and learning  
  • Inquiry-based learning approaches  
  • Teaching and learning in the age of AI 
  • Game-based learning approaches  
  • Discipline-specific pedagogies, interdisciplinary, and transferrable skills  

The event will feature four keynote lectures by Sylvie Lomer (The University of Manchester), Carol Taylor (University of Bath), Jen Harvey (Technological University Dublin), and Samia Huq (BRAC University). 

A special session will be dedicated to Yehuda Elkana's teaching legacy. The session will be led by Pușa Năstase (CEU) and Matyas Szabo (CEU).

A detailed program and schedule of the symposium will be available soon.
