We welcome presentations of:
Research outcomes of existing researcher development activity in terms of impact and efficacy of practice.
Research in to new pedagogies, theories or programme concepts for the development of researchers.
Opinion pieces founded in existing research outputs that: project future pedagogical needs and programme concepts for the development of researchers; or, identify key gaps in the current published research in respect of the development of researchers.
NEW! Delegates have the opportunity to submit abstracts for a blog post that will contribute towards a special edition of a REDS blog series that will be launched at REDS conference 2019. We encourage all those who have research they feel is suitable to present at the conference to submit for an oral presentation; however, those who are unable to attend the conference in October, or have research that they feel more suited to a blog post, should consider submitting for this new format.
For examples of the style, presentation, and detail expected, see this example. The abstract submission form is the same for both formats.

Fwd: UEL Learning and Teaching Symposium 2019 | 19th September - Connected Students - Call for Proposals now open...
We are pleased to announce our Call for Proposals for the 2019 UEL Learning and Teaching Symposium is now open at: https://uelcelt.wordpress.com/symposium/
The 2019 UEL Learning and Teaching Symposium has a theme of Connected Students. The date of the Symposium is Thursday 19th September 2019 | #uelLTSymp19
This is an overarching theme that aims to showcase the ways in which UEL currently connects our students to innovative pedagogies, through student as partners, support services and the industry to give a genuine and relevant career-focused curriculum that enables advance knowledge whereby students can grow and develop personally, professionally and intellectually.
We are the collaborative partners - the 'academic allies' - of our students in the pursuit of better opportunities for all. This event will showcase your scholarly approaches to learning and teaching that are aimed at: enhancing students' sense of belonging and engagement; harnessing the freedom of critical thinking; embracing the power of knowledge; embedding the gains of work experience; and engaging in the transgression of connectedness (connecting as equals).
We are particularly interested in decolonial praxes aimed at addressing the BAME 'attainment gap'
Interactive sessions may address a wide range of topics related to this year's theme, including, but not limited to:
- Connecting by Innovative Pedagogies
- Connecting with Partners (Students and Industry)
- Connecting to Live Applied Projects
- Connecting with the Community
- Connecting Research to Student Experience
- (Sessions can range from workshops to panel discussions; lectures will be discouraged.)
If you are doing work in any of these areas and would like to come to University Square Stratford (5 mins from Stratford Station) to present, please submit a proposal. We may be able to accommodate virtual presentations too.

Fwd: CfP for APT 2019 - "The changing roles of educators in higher and further education: the shape of teaching today"
We invite contributions for the 17th annual Academic Practice and Technology (APT) conference. The conference proposal form is available from https://aptconference.org.uk/index.php/apt/apt2019/schedConf/cfp . The deadline for receiving proposals is: Friday 13th May 2019.
The changing roles of educators in higher and further education: the shape of teaching today" is co-hosted by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), University College London (UCL) and the University of Greenwich.
APT 2019 will critique, showcase and celebrate examples of academic practice that can inspire academic and professional services staff, working in higher and further education, to develop sustainable approaches to their teaching. Delegates will address critical questions such as: How can we help our students to thrive in the face of a buffeting digital maelstrom? Where can technology create distinctive possibilities? Where might it actually hinder learning?
The conference will be held on Monday 1st July 2019 and feature parallel sessions of presentations, workshops, case studies, field reports and plenary lectures from guest speakers. A description of the 4 themes that underpin this year's conference can be found at: https://aptconference.org.uk/index.php/apt/apt2019/schedConf/themes
We hope you will be able to join us as presenters or delegates.
