Overview

RAISE Conference 2020

Join us on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd September 2020 at the University of Lincoln, when RAISE will showcase student engagement practice and research from across the sector.

This year’s conference celebrates 10 years of Student as Producer, and will include a keynote from Professor Mike Neary.

The Student as Producer project, led by Professor Mike Neary and the University of Lincoln, transformed the traditional values of teaching and learning, introducing new ways of working between the University and students. Key to this movement was establishing research-engaged teaching and learning as a central principle for curriculum design and delivery.

The practices and concepts which emerged from this work have gone on to impact the strategic decisions of a number of higher education institutions, from quality assurance to student engagement. Student as Producer has heavily influenced curriculum design and practice across the sector and has sparked considerable debate on teaching and learning in higher education.

The conference will include a mixture of keynote sessions, workshops, papers and poster presentations.

We would like to see submissions on a range of topics and themes, but we would be particularly interested in contributions that address the following areas of Undergraduate and Postgraduate student engagement:

  • Student as Producer
  • Engaging Assessment and Curriculum Design
  • Inclusion and Diversity
  • Research and Innovation
  • Digital Education and Analytics
  • Theoretical Perspectives and Challenges

The conference offers the opportunity to showcase practice and research, discuss the future of student engagement and pedagogical practice, including a celebration of ten years of Student as Producer.

Staff in all roles, students, and others interested in university and college higher education are welcome to contribute and we particularly welcome student led and collaborative submissions between students and staff and first time presenters.
