Is the Student Really at the Heart of Higher Education? Critical Voices, Critical Times

The 5th Education in a Changing Environment Conference will be held at the University of Salford, 15-16 September 2009.

The conference will focus on four main themes that are key aspects of the changes affecting higher education:

* Giving Voice to the Student Experience: methods, approaches and evidence

* Emerging Technologies, the Curriculum and Student Engagement

* Student Diversity, Internationalisation and Managing Change

* Scholarship as Critical Pedagogy

The conference will provide a forum for colleagues involved in research in these areas to present papers, workshops and posters and to discuss the implications of change in relation to their findings.
