In the past few months the higher education sector has faced unprecedented challenges. While gathering and reflecting the student voice has always been critical, it has arguably become even more necessary in these times to ensure the quality of the student experience as it evolves.
Surveys, measurement tools, qualitative research and other techniques have a key role to play in capturing and understanding feedback from students and staff. The wider insight generated from these techniques can in turn deliver creative solutions with real impact.
The conference will be delivered via our virtual conference platform. It will feature a programme of live keynote speakers and panel sessions, plus live parallel workshops, a programme of on-demand oral presentations and a virtual poster exhibition.
Join the conversation at #SurveyConf21
The conference will provide an opportunity to:
- showcase insights from surveys, bringing together keynote speakers, panels, on-demand oral presentations, posters and virtual workshops to explore real examples of innovative approaches to gathering feedback from undergraduates, postgraduates and staff
- to discuss and debate the potential of insight from surveys, metrics, qualitative research and wider methods of capturing the voice of the student for driving excellence and enhancement within higher education
- network and help foster discussions which will be beneficial across the sector.
The overarching theme for the conference will be Adapting to challenging times and it will address the following thematic areas:
