Call for session proposals


QAA’s flagship Quality Insights Conference will take place online on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 February 2023. QAA Members are invited to submit a session proposal relating to one of the three conference themes: 


Creating successful academic communities 


From space to place, individuals to communities, this theme will explore how students join and find their place within an academic community and how they can be supported to navigate between study and work environments. With competing pressures, how can we facilitate meaningful academic engagement? 


Graduate outcomes and attributes for the real world 


This theme will focus on supporting student achievement and progression through and beyond higher education. How do we help students (and employers) understand - and be able to talk about - the skills, knowledge and attributes we help them to acquire? And how do we support all students to succeed as they graduate and move into work and wider society?  


Evaluating and enhancing practice 


With so much to focus on, how do we determine our priorities for improvement and enhancement? How are we using evaluation techniques to enhance policy and practice, and how do we know it is working? This theme is interested in the changing nature of quality processes (monitoring and review) as well as evaluation of particular interventions and initiatives.   


Your session can follow either of these formats: 
  • 20-minute presentation, plus 10-minute Q&A
  • 10-minute lightning talk
