Conference details 

This conference will be hosted by Kingston University London on the 7th and 8th September 2023. Talks and workshops will be presented in person only.

The intention is to create opportunities for colleagues working in higher education to come together to share their practice and develop their connections with conference delegates working on similar issues.  

To support the conference’s theme of Addressing Equity in Higher Education Through Institutional Research the conference committee welcomes submissions that contribute insights and developments using an institutional research lens to understanding issues of equity in higher education or contributing positively to initiatives that seek to address equity issues.   

We welcome contributions from a diverse range of perspectives, and from those working in either academic or professional services roles. We also welcome international contributions that explore any of these themes. 

We are inviting abstract submissions for oral presentations, workshops and posters that address the following conference themes: 

  • Closing awarding gaps 
  • Learning gain/educational gain 
  • Employability and graduate outcomes 
  • Widening access 
  • Defining and measuring excellence 
  • Inclusive student (UG, PGT & PGR) experiences 
  • Policy and strategy 
  • Data and metrics 
  • Inclusive curriculum/decolonisation
