Key messages from the International Enhancement Conference

Date: June 24 - 2020

Today QAA Scotland publishes key findings from our 4th International Enhancement Conference, ‘Learning from Disruption: Exploring what Counts in Higher Education’, which was held online on 3 and 4 June 2020.

Nearly 400 delegates from 20 countries engaged across the two days to consider how the current period of disruption is shaping curriculum design, delivery and the wider student experience.

Featuring a wealth of valuable insights from our experienced panel of contributors, this succinct infographic (below) sets out the key findings from the event as well as the opportunities created and the actions for the sector to take forward next.

The infographic is accompanied by a blog post in which Dr Ailsa Crum (Head of Quality and Enhancement) reflects on how the conference unfolded and shares key moments from the live programme.

Visit the resources, including session recordings as well as additional papers and toolkits, on the conference webpage.
