Information about the event:

The focus for this year is ‘Death of the Dissertation? 21st Century Approaches to Critical Enquiry’.  During the day we will explore whether the dissertation is still considered as standard in undergraduate programmes, alternative approaches to critical enquiry and the benefits and challenges of using different approaches. Professor Mick Healey, HE Consultant and Researcher and Emeritus Professor at the University of Gloucestershire, will provide a keynote presentation in addition to expertise from Middlesex University including Professor Carole-Anne Upton and Professor Ifan Shepherd. The conference aims to provide participants with an opportunity to discuss the issues surrounding embedding critical enquiry, share different approaches, celebrate success and develop understanding of the nature of critical enquiry in different disciplines drawing on examples from Middlesex and across the HE sector.
