Registration Form

The PedRIO Conference ‘What is Institutional and Subject Excellence?’ is taking place on Thursday 29th November 2018. Please complete your details below to register your attendance at the event.

An increasing focus on Institutional Excellence in Higher Education has led to a proliferation of ‘excellence’ agendas (REF, TEF and, most recently, KEF). Pedagogic research crosses the boundaries between research and teaching and has strong implications for the knowledge exchange agenda and thus is perfectly situated to support (and critique) the excellence agendas. In this context, the Pedagogic Research Institute and Observatory (PedRIO) is delighted to announce an upcoming conference entitled ‘What is Institutional and Subject Excellence?'.

Aimed at bringing together leading academics from across the UK and beyond, we will be presenting papers, workshops and posters themed around the following areas:

• Demonstrating institutional and subject excellence
• Impact and evaluation – linking teaching and research
• Institutional excellence and policy developments
• Public Engagement and Pedagogic Research for impact
• Widening participation and institutional excellence

To submit a paper, please CLICK HERE (opens a new window). Please note the deadline to submit papers is 24th September 2018.

Please note that there is no cost to attend this one day conference. Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
