Draft Programme January 2010




‘Shift Happens’ The now famous YouTube video highlights some of the enormous changes and challenges now affecting the world and higher education. And universities recognise that there is much more to preparing learners for the complexities and challenges that lie ahead of them than only studying a subject. At least fifty universities in the UK are now offering award schemes that promote and value learning gained beyond the academic curriculum. This is the first national conference that has tried to bring together educational practitioners, institutional leaders, students, employer representatives and interested agencies and networks to share their perspectives and practices and consider the opportunities and challenges afforded by co-curricular and extra-curricular Award schemes.
