Are we using the right evidence to bring about change and genuinely improve the student experience?

Explore this hot topic by registering to attend the UK’s leading learning and teaching conference. The 15th Enhancement Themes Conference: Evaluation, Evidence & Enhancement: Inspiring Staff & Students, will take place on Thursday 7 June 2018.  

This global event will inspire ideas around how to use evidence to evaluate the student experience and enhance student success. It will showcase outputs from the Evidence for Enhancement: Improving the Student Experience Theme which considers data and metrics alongside creative and qualitative approaches to using evidence.

The Conference will share current thinking around the four Conference tracks.

The event follows in the footsteps of last year’s hugely successful international conference which welcomed over 600 higher education experts from 17 countries.  View our highlights video and read the testimonials to find out more.

Further information on the Enhancement Themes
