Date: June 3 to June 4 - 2020
Location: Update - please view event details for further information
Venue: Radisson Blu Hotel
Update for delegates

In light of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, QAA Scotland has taken the decision not to run any face-to-face meetings or events scheduled between now and 30 June 2020. Safeguarding the wellbeing of our staff, sector colleagues, and event delegates is of the utmost importance at this time, and we are now adapting our planned programme of activity for this period.

We are in the process of reviewing plans for the 4th International Enhancement Conference, 3-4 June 2020. At this moment in time, we would ask that delegates and contributors hold these dates in their diaries as we explore how best to deliver valuable activities and outputs online. We appreciate your patience and look forward to sharing a revised programme of activity soon.

If you have any questions please contact

QAA Scotland’s 4th international enhancement conference will take place on 3 and 4 June 2020, at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow’s city centre.

The conference will pose a number of key questions:

  • How can we use evidence to support decision-making?
  • What counts as valid evidence?
  • How can we ensure we are working in partnership with students?
  • How can we ensure that we are using evidence ethically? 

Plenary sessions, papers and workshops will allow delegates to explore five key conference strands:

  • Understanding student demographics, retention, progression and success
  • Using big data to enhance learning and teaching and the student experience
  • Creating and valuing evidence beyond numbers
  • Empowering staff and students to use evidence
  • Supporting employability and the development of graduate skills.

Who should attend?

The conference will be of interest to colleagues working within higher education including:

  • institutional policy decision makers
  • higher education leaders
  • heads of quality
  • planners, strategists and data practitioners
  • academics, practitioners and professional service staff
  • students, student representatives and students’ association staff, and
  • representatives from national and international quality assurance agencies.
