The Practitioners Forum is an opportunity for staff & students involved with to meet & develop the project collectively.

Due to the need to continue social distancing, the Practitioners Forum planned for late May has been reimagined into two short webinars, which will take place on 28 May, the same day the Practitioners Forum was due to take place. Each webinar will have a particular focus and an opportunity for discussion:

11am – 12 pm

Make an impact - What has ever done for you(r students)?

Series of short presentations from participating institutions on achieving impact

Moderated Q & A and discussion


2.30pm – 3.30pm

Data analysis for impact

Session on data analysis led by Analysis and Impact Group

Moderated Q & A and discussion

The aims of the webinars are closely tied to the topics. The first aims to showcase some of the impact achieved in recent years on foot of results in the participating institutions, to demonstrate good practice and to inform and inspire other institutions.

The second aims to empower all institutions to elevate your analysis of the data and to communicate the results and the impacts of the results with students, staff and beyond. It aims to meet institutions where you are and empower you with the information and tools you need to reach your goals of achieving impact from student feedback.

As they will all be live webinars, the centrality of meeting colleagues for discussion and relationship building will not be lost. There will be time for discussion as part of each webinar, which we know is a poor substitute for the collegiality we all enjoyed at the Practitioners Forum 2019 but, given the circumstances, we will make the most of the time we have together.
