Nottingham Conference Centre
15 September 2011 09:00 - 16 September 2011 15:40

The overarching objective of the inaugural Researching, Advancing & Inspiring Student Engagement (RAISE) Conference is to focus specifically on student engagement.

The conference aims to:

  • Develop conceptual clarity about the nature of student engagement
  • Disseminate and showcase evidence informed practice
  • Provide networking and professional development opportunities for participants
  • Involve students – who are particularly welcome at the conference

The conference themes are:

  • Presenting conceptual models  based on well founded research about student engagement
  • Evaluation of student engagement initiatives at an institutional level
  • Evaluation of curricular and extra-curricular  developments to engage students in their learning
  • Sharing evidence about student expectations, experiences and identity and their impact on engagement

The organisers have put together a conference programme  based on many excellent submissions which include several presentations involving undergraduate students. The main keynote will be delivered by Professor Mantz Yorke.
