Fwd: PedRIO conference: Institutional and Subject Excellence


'What is Institutional and Subject Excellence?'

University of Plymouth, 29th November 2018

An increasing focus on Institutional Excellence in Higher Education has led to a proliferation of 'excellence' agendas (REF, TEF and, most recently, KEF). Pedagogic research crosses the boundaries between research and teaching and has strong implications for the knowledge exchange agenda and thus is perfectly situated to support (and critique) the excellence agendas. In this context, the Pedagogic Research Institute and Observatory (PedRIO) is delighted to announce an upcoming conference entitled 'What is Institutional and Subject Excellence?'.


Aimed at bringing together leading academics from across the UK and beyond, you are invited to submit an abstract for a paper (15 mins with 5 minutes discussion), workshop (1 hour) or poster, themed around one of the following areas:


• Demonstrating institutional and subject excellence
Impact and evaluation – linking teaching and research

Institutional excellence and policy developments
• Public Engagement and Pedagogic Research for impact

 Widening participation and institutional excellence


Please submit your abstract via this link - closing date: 24th September 2018.

Conference registration is also available here                   



Louis Coiffait, Associate Editor at WonkHE.  Keynote title: 'High Seas: the shipping forecast for UK HE policy'.

The conference will take place on Thursday 29th November 2018 at the University of Plymouth, UK. For any queries, please email pedrio@plymouth.ac.uk
