Thanks again to everyone who attended and contributed to the sparqs National Conference on Friday 29th May 2015. We were delighted to have over 180 delegates attend, and initial feedback shows that people found it a valuable day. All of the materials and a selection of photos from the day are now up on our webpages.
The main conference page outlines the day and the keynote sessions, including a 'storify' which gives an excellent flavour of the day via the twitter activity during the conference. The hashtag #sparqs15 was on fire during the day – we were trending (in the Edinburgh area we think!)..... beaten only by National Biscuit Day and Sepp Blatter!
The Student Engagement Awards pages outline all the category winners, runners-up and shortlisted nominees, including photos from the awards reception.
There is also a page outlining the International Delegates' Day held on Thursday 28th May as a precursor to the main conference. The materials from the day are available to view, and again, the twitter 'storify' gives a great overview of the day.
The conference was an excellent showcase for the breadth and quality of student engagement work that is taking place across colleges and universities in Scotland, the rest of the UK and internationally. Special thanks to all those who delivered keynotes, facilitated workshops and presentations and displayed their posters and stalls, all of which contributed to the success of the conference.
We sincerely hope everyone enjoyed and valued the day!
