The third ENLIGHT Teaching and Learning Conference took place at the University of Bordeaux from 11 to 13 October 2023. The focus of the conference was on empowering students. 

At the conference, teaching staff members, programme directors, education promoters, students and representatives of many other areas of life shared their experiences and ideas on how to combine innovative teaching methods with ENLIGHT's educational goals. 22 people from the University of Tartu participated in the conference.
