15th Annual SEDA Conference 2010

Developing ourselves: a conference for educational developers, by educational developers

16 November 2010 - 17 November 2010

Location: Queen Hotel, Chester

The annual  conference will take an interesting new form this year. The event will have a number of strands running throughout the two days intended to provide an opportunity for educational developers to engage with their peers in their own professional development. The strands will include:

  • Professional Development
  • Curriculum Development
  • Evaluating Impact and Value for Money
  • Leading Educational Change
  • Educational Developers as Scholars.

Participants will have an opportunity to move between strands in order to take part in the different presentations, workshops and group activities planned for each.

Other highlights of the conference will include presentations from David Green (Seattle University) and Glynis Cousin (University of Wolverhampton), focused on where educational development has come from, where we are now and where we are going and a focus on 'big issues' including sustainability, graduate attributes, access to HE and the student voice. There will also be opportunities to walk the labyrinth, to contribute your thoughts to the Reading Group and to focus on yourself and on your needs.

Although using a different format, SEDA's tradition of providing you with plenty of opportunities for convivial networking within the programme and social events will continue and be much in evidence. These latter will include a drinks reception and a conference dinner on the evening of 16th November. The conference will be held in Chester's centrally-located  Queen Hotel providing you with opportunities to explore the quirky features which characterise this comfortable and welcoming hotel and to visit the beautiful historic city of Chester.
