This is a new style of event designed exclusively for QAA subscribers to gain exclusive opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing with colleagues across the UK.
With the student body continuing to diversify, we know that personalisation of the learning experience is a priority area for leaders in HE institutions. We are delighted to be able to host two inspiring figures, Professor George Siemens and Ian Dunn, for a day of discussion on this issue.
This event has been designed to allow senior colleagues a unique opportunity to discuss how to use evidence to make and inspire large-scale institutional change to improve the student journey.
Numbers will be limited to ensure that you will have the opportunity to participate fully in guided discussions with both speakers. Chaired by Professor Frank Coton, this will be a unique and valuable opportunity for leaders in the sector.
