The Centre for Innovation in Higher Education (CIHE) is pleased to announce a national pedagogic research conference, on the theme of Moving into Pedagogic Research, which will take place on ARU’s Cambridge campus on Thursday 11 July 2024.

The call for papers will be announced soon. We welcome proposals from PGRs, newer career researchers, and experienced pedagogic researchers.

Email [email protected] for further information.

Our keynote is Dr Becky Turner, an Associate Professor in Educational Development based at the University of Plymouth, and a Principal Fellow of the HEA. She will be discussing Pedagogic research: a catalyst for educational change at the conference.

At Plymouth Becky provides teaching development for staff working across the University, from PhD students taking their first steps into teaching to established lecturers seeking recognition for their contributions to learning, teaching and student support.

She is an active researcher, undertaking work at Plymouth on agendas such as curriculum enhancement, inclusive practice and student voice. Her research is designed to provide an evidence base to inform pedagogic change and innovation. Through this, Becky uses pedagogic research to provide a platform for groups who may be overlooked or underrepresented within the wider University community. Beyond Plymouth, Becky has undertaken several nationally funded projects focused on student unions, learning gain and impact evaluation.
