**Apologies for cross posting**


Dear all,


We’re seeking contributions for sessions at the Higher Education Academy’s annual Surveys for Enhancement Conference, which will take place on Wednesday 4 June 2014 at The Rep Theatre in Birmingham.


The conference is aimed at those interested in how feedback from students can inform improvements to experience, engagement and the quality of learning and teaching in higher education. Prospective attendees might include senior staff with strategic responsibility for learning & teaching, educational developers and researchers, quality enhancement professionals, survey and data officers, student representatives and academic teaching staff.


Proposals for workshops or presentations may focus on any issues relating to the use of surveys for enhancing learning, teaching and the student experience, but proposals that relate to the conference themes are particularly welcomed. These are:


1. Indicating quality – for example, using student surveys to measure engagement, assess learning gain or benchmark other dimensions of quality of the student experience.


2. Engaging students – for example, involving students in the analysis and discussion of survey results or obtaining feedback and establishing dialogue in other ways.


3. Evaluating modules – for example, the benefits and challenges of using standard module evaluations, benchmarking module performance and using feedback supportively.


4. Embedding in enhancement – for example, how are surveys best used as part of both formal and informal quality enhancement processes?


The closing date for proposals is Friday 21 February 2014.


For further information, including details on how to submit proposals, please go to http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/surveys/conference


Best wishes,




Dr Alex Buckley

Academic Development Officer
