safeguarding standards and improving the quality of UK higher education

CLOSED: Engaging in Quality: towards an inclusive partnership 


Launch event for Chapter B3: Learning and teaching and Chapter B5: Student engagement of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education 

Event date:
7 November 2012 
Marriott Victoria and Albert Hotel, Manchester 

QAA published Chapter B5: Student engagement of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education at the end of June 2012 and will be publishing Chapter B3: Learning and teaching at the end of September. These two Chapters share common themes in relation to the way higher education providers work in partnership with their students to deliver a high quality experience.

The aims of this event are to introduce some of the key themes of these two new Chapters, provide further feedback on some of the issues raised during the consultation process, and help delegates share sound practice in relation to these Chapters.

A draft programme for the day is available.

As part of the day we will be running a 'global cafe' roundtable event to give delegates the chance to discuss using the Chapters in practice and share sound practice in more detail.

The session will feature multiple tables hosting different topics for discussion. The various topics will all be focused on diverse student personas in relation to the two Chapters. For example a table could be themed around engaging postgraduate research students in student representation or learning opportunities for part-time students on master's degrees. During this session delegates will have the chance to engage in discussion around the tables which match their interests.

To make this session as useful as possible these topics will be set by those attending. Therefore we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to submit examples of good practice or topics of discussion for this session. Depending on numbers it is anticipated that the session will be split into two so you should expect to host a table for around 30 minutes. Topics can be focused on the sharing of good practice of successful projects or opportunities to discuss issues and identify solutions.

If you are attending the event and are interested in hosting a discussion please submit your topic by 24 October to
