This day of practice exchange aims to inspire and empower course leaders to work in partnership with students to drive change on their courses and enhance the learning experience. It is also an opportunity for course leaders, programme leaders, course coordinators and those who support them to share questions and experience in a supportive, peer-led environment.

Vice-Chancellor Edward Peck will open the conference with updates on issues relevant to course leaders, and some key messages on staff-student partnerships. NTSU will also share some initiatives and insights on student engagement. The keynote address will be given by Luke Millard, Head of Centre for Excellence and Teaching at Birmingham City University. Luke has several years of professional and research experience in student engagement and working in partnership with students. Luke will address ways to inspire course teams and students to work together in driving change that genuinely enhances the student academic experience.

Case studies, initiatives and approaches around staff and students working together in various areas (including curriculum design, learning and teaching approaches and materials, student support, student progression and attainment) will be explored in workshops and World Café discussions.

Stalls in the marketplace will run throughout the conference. Here, course leaders can get one-to-one support with questions on different topics including sustainability, employability, Success for All, and NTSU services. A designated time slot is provided for delegates to actively explore the marketplace.
