| 11 May 2018

@ThemesTweets will be running the first Enhancement Themes twitter chat in partnership with the Learning and Teaching in Higher Education chat (@LTHEchat) called Hidden Figures – using evidence to support students.

This chat presents an opportunity for staff and students to discuss how to navigate the higher education sector’s data revolution and explore how student demographics, retention and attainment can support learning and teaching.

Inspired by the hugely successful #edchat, #LTHE was set up to focus conversations on learning and teaching in Higher Education (HE). The weekly chat is open to anyone interested in higher education and will provide an opportunity to share practices as well as ideas and connect with other practioners on a regular basis.

The chat will take place on twitter on Wednesday 16 May 2018 from 8pm to 9pm (BST). A blog post about the topics that will be explored in the chat can be read on the @LTHEchats website.

For those unsure, how to take part, please see @LTHEchat’s Q&A below:
