HEA Annual Conference, 3-4 July 2013, The University of Warwick
Powerful partnerships: defining the learning experience
Conference Park - Warwick Conferences

Gibbett Hill Road
Building on last year’s successful conference, which examined the transformational change in HE, this year the 9th Annual Conference of the Higher Education Academy, Powerful partnerships: defining the learning experience, will explore the increasing use of partnerships to address the challenges presented by change. In this uncertain environment, higher education is investing in partnerships, both within the UK and internationally, to develop new avenues and markets, drawing on the vibrancy and unique strengths of each partner.
These partnerships are multifaceted and we address this at the conference within three strands: students; employers; and organisations as partners. This conference will develop our understanding of how such partnerships affect the student experience and educational outcome, and also benefit society as a whole. While recognising the competitive environment, the conference will discuss and dismantle issues around partnerships to discover how to sustain success through partnerships.
