Unlocking potential: the key to inspiring life-long and life-wide learning Wednesday 13 June (4.30-7.00) & Thursday 14 June (9.00-5.00)

In today’s culture of increasing accountability in Higher Education, this conference seeks to explore the opportunities for unlocking student potential. There are numerous strategies to inspire life-long learners, including authentic learning experiences, working in partnerships and sharing innovative approaches to learning, teaching and assessment.

The conference will commence on the 13th with a keynote lecture from:

Luke Millard who will be exploring “Unlocking student potential through engagement”.

Luke is the Director of Educational Development Service at Birmingham City University; he is a Principal Fellow of the HEA and was Chair of the European First Year Experience conference in 2017.

The evening will conclude with an informal Cheese and Wine evening, offering the opportunity to review Posters submitted on this year’s theme and network with colleagues.

On the 14th we are pleased to welcome a keynote lecture from:

Eric Stoller with his presentation “Digital Dissonance – Learning to Embrace Change and Enhance the Student Experience”

Eric is a higher education thought-leader, consultant, writer, and speaker. He frequently gives keynotes on how educators can use social media for learning and engagement and is a proponent for teaching students about digital identity development.

There will also be opportunities to discover more about our development programmes for teaching staff  (HEA Accredited fellowships) and our Student and Academic staff partnership Programmes which allow students to engage with and contribute to the ongoing improvement of learning and teaching methods and resources.

More information and a detailed conference programme will be issued closer to the event – we look forward to welcoming you in June.
