FW: Final reminder of HEIR 2017 proposal submission deadline





This is preheader text. Some clients will show this text as a preview.

Dear all,

A reminder that the deadline for submission of abstracts for HEIR 2017 is Friday 28 April 2017.  Colleagues wishing to submit can do so here


We invite research and discussion papers, workshops and posters that showcase examples of evidence-led enhancements to the student experience, on themes including student satisfaction, retention, transitions, progression and destinations. Submissions from both quantitative and qualitative projects are welcome.


About the conference

The 10th Higher Education Institutional Research (HEIR) Conference will explore the role of institutional research in creating a culture of evidence-based enhancement.   This theme will be explored through four conference tracks:

-          Supporting strategic decisions

-          Empowering learners

-          Engaging diverse audiences

-          Policy landscapes


The programme will include a keynote by Professor Gilly Salmon, currently Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education Innovation) at the University of Western Australia, who is internationally renowned for her significant contributions to education futures, including research, program design, teaching methods and the use of new technologies.


We are also delighted to be joined by Professor Sarah Moore, Associate Vice President Academic at the University of Limerick.  Professor Moore has researched and explored the process of academic development, teaching and learning, and uses what she has found to help academics, teachers, researchers and students to develop productive patterns of learning, innovation and professional development.   Notably, Professor Moore chairs Ireland's National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (NFETL).  Further keynote details will follow shortly.

FW: EFYE 2017 - Registration Reminder


European First Year Experience 2017


Dear colleagues,


Conference registration is open for the European First Year Experience Conference 2017, due to take place from 28th- 30th June at Birmingham City University. We will be focussing on two important themes throughout the conference.


Student and Staff Partnerships


Our key focus sees the conference highlight the beneficial impact of Student and Staff Partnerships on the first year experience. We believe that the staff-student conversation is one of the best avenues for change and throughout the conference would want to create a vibrant climate in which staff and students engage in discussions about the future of the first year experience.


Learning Gain


Through Learning Gain we seek to focus upon the ‘distance travelled’ by students, educationally and professionally as they transition from school or college into university and through that first year experience.  We would want participants to engage with initiatives that demonstrate how measurement and evaluative methods can be used to demonstrate the impact of first year experience activities




We look forward to seeing you in June.
