Event description

Description

The fifth Higher Education Design Quality Forum (HEDQF) Annual Conference will be held at The University of Edinburgh Informatics Forum on the 18th June preceded by a reference visit to the Bayes Centre on 17th June.

The conference will be based in the Informatics Forum by Bennetts Associates adjacent to the newly-opened Bayes Centre, also designed by Bennetts Associates, which brings together academic staff and students working in the fields of Data Technology, Design Informatics, Maths and Robotics with start-up / spin-out companies and industrial collaborators and acts as a gateway into the university's campus at George Square.

Confirmed speakers include; the University of Edinburgh, the University of Glasgow, SRUC, the LSE, Hawkins Brown, KSS Architects, Buro Happold and Atkins.

Throughout the day we will consider why wellness is important in higher education and the role that design has to play, and wellness tools being used by universities, and in other sectors.

The day will include a student panel session and PechaKucha presentations followed by Q&A.
