CAN 2023 – Reimagining student/staff partnerships to generate new learning opportunities – call for proposals

The University of Hertfordshire and Jisc are proud to announce the next Change Agents’ Network conference which will be on 17th and 18th May 2023 “Reimagining student/staff partnerships to generate new learning opportunities”.

17th May will be an online access conference day, and 18th May an in-person event at the University’s Fielder Centre conferencing facilities.

We are looking for students and staff to share their work on partnership in the spaces around:
• wellbeing and a sense of community
• making digital learning more inclusive in times of cost of living concerns
• investing in staff and students’ digital capabilities
• making active engagement in partnership work

We also invite those who have a great story to tell about staff student partnership work, but who are unsure where it aligns with themes to get in touch with the conference planning team, we don’t want anyone to feel that they couldn’t come and share their good practice.

We are accepting a range of formats to be delivered either live and online, or pre-recorded, or in-person:
• Short practice-sharing submissions known as 5-minute lightning talks
• Engaging asynchronous content in the form of micro-videos (less than 5mins), narrated poster presentations and short case studies.
• Longer sessions of 20-30 mins which should be interactive in nature, enabling others to think through and develop their own practice, delivered online or in person.
• Collaborative activities and networking opportunities through workshops, round tables, or discussion, delivered in person.
