Conference Overview

This two-day residential research conference provides an opportunity for colleagues to take stock of, and engage with, equity research five years after the HEFCE-commissioned 'Barriers Review' was initiated.  The wide-ranging review of widening participation research was critical about both the quality and scope of much equity-related research.  It also noted the lack of evidence about the effectiveness and impact of work in this area.

Equity is taken to mean the access, participation and experience of diverse students in higher education, including institutional anticipation and response to diversity.  In short, we are connecting the areas of widening participation and equality and diversity. 

We envisage colleagues from the widening participation, equality and diversity, disability, lifelong learning, research, learning and teaching, academic/student support, marketing, recruitment and admissions communities will be interested in attending.

The conference is organised by the Higher Education Academy, as part of its EvidenceNet service.
