Dear Colleagues

We have a limited number of places available for HEA STEM's first Annual Conference at Imperial College London & the Royal Geographical Society 12 – 13 April, and have already over 150 delegates registered.  If you would like to attend please register soon at;

As part of HEA STEM's first Annual Conference we are running a student competition.  Our aim is to encourage students to think about why they are following their current course of study and to encourage others to consider the same.  We would be grateful if you could distribute the following to your students.

The STEM team at the Higher Education Academy invites students from the STEM disciplines to submit a photograph or digital image that captures the essence/excitement of your subject and might motivate others to study it.

All submissions will be displayed at the HEA STEM Annual Conference in poster format and the images will be judged by the delegates of the STEM conference.

The winner will be awarded a £250 book token and invited to attend the Higher Education Academy National Annual Conference in July 2012 (all expenses paid), where the prize will be awards to the winner and the other discipline winners at the conference dinner.

Submissions must be emailed to by 1 April 2012 (extended deadline).

Kindest regards


Karen Fraser

About the Higher Education Academy

The HEA is a national body for enhancing learning and teaching in higher education in the UK. We work with institutions across the HE system to help bring about change in learning and teaching to improve the outcomes for students. We do this by recognising and rewarding excellent teaching, bringing together people and resources to research and share best practice and by helping influence, shape and implement policy.

The HEA supports staff in higher education throughout their career from those who are new to teaching through to senior management. We offer services in 28 disciplines and throughout the UK, and have offices in England, Wales and Scotland. Through the partnership management team we work directly with institutions to understand individual circumstances and priorities and bring together resources to meet them.

Owned by Universities UK and Guild HE, the HEA is funded by the four national funding councils, institutional subscriptions and project income.
