PRHE 10 - Research-Teaching Linkages to Enhance Student Learning

Foresight Centre, University of Liverpool
25 October 2010 00:00 - 26 October 2010 00:00

The PRHE10 conference is a biennial event which brings together, in an intimate and welcoming environment, researchers and practitioners to share research findings, promote rigorous pedagogical research and build collaborative research networks. This year it has been organised to follow on from the ISSOTL conference which is coming to Liverpool for the first time from 19th-22nd October, 2010

The conference will as usual be organised by Liverpool Hope University but this year the location of the conference is in the centre of Liverpool at the Foresight Centre, an award winning facility for conferences and events.

Keynote speakers

Bringing together practitioners and those who are beginning their pedagogical research with experienced researchers in an open and supportive environment has been a consistent and much-valued
feature of PRHE. As part of this endeavour, the organisers are delighted to have confirmed the following four keynote speakers:

  • Professor Randall Bass, Georgetown University, USA.
  • Professor Mick Healey,University of Gloucestershire, UK.
  •  Professor Jan Meyer, Durham University, UK
  • Professor Keith Trigwell, University of Sydney, Australia.

Abstracts invited

The PRHE10 conference committee is now inviting abstracts for papers from those who are currently researching learning and teaching in the higher education context. Abstracts will be considered in the following areas which relate to the overall theme of researchteaching linkages to enhance student learning:

  • Active, experiential learning, or enquiry-based learning
  • Research informed curriculum initiatives
  • Assessment which encourages student enquiry
  • Students’ perceptions of research teaching linkages
  • Academics’ perceptions of research teaching linkages
  • Academic developers’ perceptions of research teaching linkages
  • Comparative approaches (i.e. the disciplines, institutions, international contexts)
  • Graduate attributes
  • Links with employability

There are two types of papers at this conference: research and theoretical/conceptual papers (refereed). The time allocated for each paper is 30 minutes, of which no more than 20 minutes is allowed for presentation to enable participants to have 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Criteria for proposed papers
All abstracts (500 words) for proposed papers will be independently reviewed by two referees. In particular, we are looking for papers that are empirically and/or theoretically based rather than untheorised descriptions of practice. For details of the criteria, please visit the website. Authors of accepted papers will be given the opportunity for redrafting after the conference for publication in a special conference issue of PRIME (Pedagogical Research in Maximising Education). Final papers are to be no more than 5,000 words (to include appendices and references)

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 30 April 2010
