The deadline for submitting proposals for QAA Scotland's annual Enhancement Themes conference in June has been extended until Tuesday 16th January! 

The conference is the 15th Enhancement Conference - Evaluation, Evidence and Enhancement: inspiring staff and students.  It is taking place on Thursday 7th June 2018, at Glasgow Caledonian University.  

See the Enhancement Themes website for further information and to submit your session proposalsYou can submit proposals in a variety of formats, including papers, lightning talks and workshops. Student-led contributions are highly encouraged so get involved!

The conference will showcase activity around the latest Enhancement Theme on use of evidence to enhance the student experience.  The use of evidence to evaluate the student experience and promote student success has never been more vital. The Evidence for Enhancement Theme considers data and metrics alongside creative, qualitative approaches and asks: 'are we using effective evidence to bring about change and genuinely inspire our students?'

The conference will share current thinking around the following four tracks:

  • Navigating the data landscape
  • Using qualitative and quantitative approaches to enhance student retention, attainment and employability
  • Finding effective evidence for prompting students' engagement in their learning
  • Evaluating improvements in the student experience.

Get involved and showcase your work!
