RAISE2018 conference call for papers

“Working Better Together:
Collaborations in Student Engagement”

Wednesday 5th – Friday 7th September 2018
Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield, UK

Our annual conference offers the opportunity to showcase practice and research and take part in lively discussion about student engagement and partnership. Staff in all roles, students, and others interested in university and college higher education are welcome to contribute.

The major theme of this conference is celebrating our collaborative approaches to student engagement. That might refer to how students and staff work together in partnership, how institutions work with colleagues beyond their institutions on shared student engagement projects and initiatives, and/or how we work with partner organisations to explore new opportunities and dimensions to student engagement. 

We look forward to hearing about a variety of ideas, practices, and areas of research and development, through a range of papers, participatory workshops, posters, Pecha Kuchas, panel discussions and keynote addresses; not to mention plenty of time for networking and establishing new contacts.
