HEIR 2024 Call for Abstracts now ppen – deadline 31 May

The call for papers is now open: please enter your submissions here before the deadline of 31 May.  

This year’s theme is equitable student progression and encompasses multiple strands of IR activity that have illuminated previous conferences. Progression is usually taken to mean student progression on their course of study: engaging, being retained, making academic progress and gaining a good award, and our sub-themes of inclusive student experiences, inclusive / decolonised curriculum and learning gain address these aspects of the student journey. With a broader interpretation of ‘progression’, we also want to welcome submissions that speak to the ‘into’ and ‘beyond’ stages of the journey: transition into HE and progression into careers and further study. 

Keynote speakers will be announced soon and will address the importance of equitable student progression from the perspective of policy-makers, educators and students.
