International enhancement conference - live session recordings and resources

Date: June 10 - 2020

Recordings of every live presentation, Q&A session and panel discussion from QAA Scotland’s International Enhancement Conference are now available!

The recordings are the final addition to a suite of new digital resources produced for ‘Learning from Disruption: Exploring what Counts in Higher Education’, including lighting talks, videos, papers and a digital poster.

Resources cover a breadth of topics, including an exploration of what evidence counts in policy and practice, student perceptions of learning analytics across universities in Scotland, the development of effective feedback and processes for students, and a transitions toolkit to support pre-arrival student reflection.

We also highlight a number of practical resources from the current Enhancement Theme: Evidence for Enhancement to help support the sector during this time of disruption, including our new Staff Guide to Using Evidence and our Responding to Student Voice resource pack.

You can also find out more about the work of the current Enhancement Theme in our new summary film.
