We run a number of conferences and networking opportunities throughout the year aimed to bring together practitioners at various levels in their career path to discuss innovation and best practice in teaching and learning in higher education.
Our flagship Annual Conference covers all discpline areas and a range of strategic priorities within higher education. We also run a number of smaller conferences aimed at the STEM, Health and Social Care and Surveys communities.
Strategic networks have been set up that bring together senior leaders, Deans and practictioners to discuss hard hitting priorities and share practice with peers.
Higher Education Academy Conferences
The HEA’s 2018 Annual Conference will position the spotlight firmly on teaching in a global context, in particular how we can learn from global communities to ensure the best student experience for all and the ongoing development and professionalisation of the HE teaching community.
The two-day conference features a mix of peer-led workshops, presentations and respected keynotes for each of the individual STEM disciplines, as well as opportunities for learning from cross-disciplinary practice.
The Higher Education Academy Surveys conference showcases how surveys are making a difference and facilitates the sharing of innovative practice between professionals across the sector, both in measuring but also addressing the key issues affecting the student experience.
The leading international conference for networking in healthcare education returns to the beautiful university city of Cambridge for its 29th year. The 2018 NET Conference is an ideal opportunity to share research, innovation and the latest ideas in healthcare with colleagues from all across the world.
"It is always a great opportunity to share ideas and experiences with like-minded people.”
