This year’s event takes place over two days and includes a mixture of short oral talks, workshops and interactive poster presentations showcasing the innovative scholarship work conducted by STEM colleagues.
Day one will feature a panel conversation reflecting on the interactions within and between stakeholder communities in fostering innovation, carrying out scholarship, and in driving impactful change of practice.
We are delighted to welcome keynote presentations by David White, Head of Digital Education and Academic Practice at the University of the Arts London, and Cate Cropper from the Central Teaching Laboratory based at the University of Liverpool.
We will be awarding a prize for the best interactive poster presentation and celebrating excellence in eSTEeM projects with the annual eSTEeM Scholarship Projects of the Year Awards, now in its fifth year.
We look forward to welcoming you on the 11-12 May.
