Registration for CAN 2017 is open and places are filling fast. The deadline for registration is 7 April. The 5th annual CAN conference on 20 & 21 April is a fantastic opportunity for students and staff from across the UK to share good practice and honest reflections on the importance of working in partnership to improve the education experience. This year’s conference is hosted by the University of Exeter and supported by Jisc.
There are 50 confirmed sessions and a closing plenary student panel session. The conference will open with a keynote address presented jointly by staff and students at the University of Exeter, charting the role that Exeter students have played as “Change Agents” over the last 10 years, and what developments and challenges lie ahead for Exeter. The Conference’s second keynote address, “Authentic Partnership – what, how and why?” will be provided by Colin Bryson (Newcastle University, Chair of the RAISE Network) in partnership with Fanni Albert, a combined honours student from Newcastle University.
Have a look at the final programme here and if you want to know what this CAN conference is building on, have a look at Birmingham 2015 and Lincoln 2016. One participant reflected “This event has been a great opportunity to share ideas and discuss common goals, challenges and ideas.” We hope you’ll join us and discover that the ‘buzz’ happens throughout the 2 days and isn’t limited to the coffee breaks!
