We are thrilled to announce details of the ARC Conference for 2021, which is taking place on Monday, 1 November 2021. When we were planning the conference, we did not know what government restrictions would be in place, so took the decision to hold a one day virtual conference. In this way, we can continue to provide you with insightful presentations from experts but also give you the opportunity to get together with your colleagues to discuss thorny topics and to network.
The theme of the conference is “Emerging from the Pandemic”. We have been through an unprecedented 18 months which has challenged our sector to ensure the continued delivery of high quality education in regularly changing circumstances and requiring resourceful solutions. In the light of this, learning from how we managed to survive and looking to the future seemed a vital theme for this year’s conference. We are delighted that we are able to look at this from a number of different angles from those working within Higher Education institutions and those working alongside it. The perspectives of a Vice Provost, an educational journalist, a data transformation expert, a consumer professional and a educational transformation organisation will provide an excellent insight for us all. We can also discuss together in more detail the future of working practices, regulatory requirements, admissions, funding and staff development to learn from and support each other.
We have also decided to offer the conference to you at no cost. So please sign up to join us on 1st November 2021 and participate in how we can emerge from the pandemic.
