Meeting Description:

Unprecedented changes in UK higher education have placed Arts and Humanities subjects under particular scrutiny and pressure. This Higher Education Academy conference aims to celebrate the Arts and Humanities in higher education and to highlight and share the many creative and innovative ways in which Arts and Humanities courses, and those who teach and study them, are meeting the serious and complex challenges that confront them.

The Higher Education Academy (HEA) uses expertise and resources to support individual staff, disciplinary and interdisciplinary teams or communities, institutions and HE as a whole to enhance the quality and impact of learning and teaching in higher education.

The Pedagogies of Hope and Opportunity conference will provide a platform for the expertise and knowledge found in teaching and learning in the Arts and Humanities, which pushes boundaries and fosters a culture of innovation transforming student learning.

The HEA's Arts and Humanities discipline group includes the following subject areas:

Archaeology and Classics
Area Studies
Art and Design
Cinematics and Photography
Dance, Drama and Music
English
History
Journalism
Languages
Linguistics
Media and Communications
Philosophical and Religious Studies

Call for Papers:

Innovative practice in teaching and learning in the Arts and Humanities
