About this Event

SEDA presents: The SEDA Spring Conference 2021

SEDA will be holding its Spring Conference online across 2 days on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th May 2021. Opening with keynote, David Kernohan from Wonkhe, this conference will provide opportunities to reflect, discuss and share lessons learned from the teaching approaches adopted during this academic year and discuss their implications, potential application and potential for further development. Some commentators argued that the 2020 crisis gave us unique opportunities to both ‘transform’ higher education and enhance our contribution to the broader society, e.g. the article by Fernando M. Reimers – ‘Universities can be midwife to an education renaissance’ (THE, 9/7/20). This event will allow us to explore how realistic these aspirations are and examine the most likely consequences of post-pandemic educational change.

This event will be of value to staff at all levels in Higher and Further Education who are involved in the enhancement of student learning, including educational and learning developers, course and programme leaders, Associate Deans and other managers of student learning, learning technologists, and staff in student services.

We will be addressing the following themes, via workshops, discussions and presentations:

• What have we learned from over a year of the ‘new abnormal’ in optimising the student experience through course design and delivery; learning, teaching and assessment; staff and student support; recruitment and retention; and academic development?

• How are we applying what we have learned in these, and other areas of educational change, to the design of the University Experience for the future?

• Reimagining how we engage in educational change to ensure the most positive student experience is now more critical than ever. What will be the main parameters of what will become the expected experience of those in HE&FE? How will we help ourselves, and support each other, to navigate them successfully?
