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.
