Getting the most out of the Coventry University Group Staff Conference 2022

The 2022 Coventry University Group Staff Conference has a different structure compared to previous events.  The conference activities will consist of a sharing practice event on the 23rd June (12:00 - 17:15) and this will be followed by a series of development sessions in the week commencing 27th June. 

The conference is aimed at all staff in the University involved in delivering and supporting teaching, learning and the student experience.  The conference themes are: student support; teaching and learning delivery; learning design; access, participation and inclusion; and assessment. 

The 23rd June event will be on-campus, across different locations, recognising that not everyone will be able to travel to one location.  The locations being used are; Coventry University ECB; Coventry University London Campus; CU Scarborough; and Wroclaw.
