Subject: Friendly invitation to participate SCEPTrE's final conference

Dear colleagues
May we wish you a happy and successful year and draw your attention to what will be SCEPTrE's final conference as we finish at the end of March. The focus is on student development through their wider life experiences while they are at university and there is a strong focus on capability development. We have two very good and interesting keynote speakers. Professor John Cowan will call for radical changes in pedagogy to support these forms of student development and Maret Staron (Mindful Creations Australia) will talk about her research and development work into life-based learning in the work environment. Her work emphasises the need for a strength-based approach to capability development.
We have structured the conference to encourage lots of participation and sharing of practice and we are sponsoring it to keep costs to a minimum. We hope that you will not only want to attend the conference but share your own practices in supporting student development. To find out more and download the booking form please visit the symposium wiki.
Please pass this invitation to anyone you feel might be interested.
Best wishes
