Our first in person conference for three years, with online participation also available, the programme is an exciting mix of short orals, workshops and poster presentations showcasing scholarship work conducted by STEM colleagues.

We are delighted to announce a keynote presentation by Harriet Dunbar-Morris from the University of Portsmouth who will discuss approaches for staff-student co-creation to curriculum design. Day one will feature a workshop focused on increasing student engagement in scholarship and we will also be celebrating the launch of our forthcoming Impact of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning publication.

We will be presenting the annual eSTEeM Scholarship Projects of the Year awards which will celebrate excellence in eSTEeM projects over the past year. Conference delegates will also be invited to vote for the best poster presentation.
