AHE Conference 2019

Macdonald Hotel & Spa, London Road, Piccadilly, Manchester M1 2PG Off-Campus


This event will be the seventh international Assessment in Higher Education conference. This research and academic development conference is a forum for critical debate of research and innovation focused on assessment and feedback practice and policy. The themes for our 2019 conference will invite a wide range of papers, practice exchanges and posters. Themed poster presentations, accompanied by a short pitch from the authors, have been a particular strength of the conference and have encouraged networking by delegates.

Keynote Speakers

Phil Dawson: Associate Professor at Deakin University

Bruce Macfarlane: Professor of Higher Education at University of Bristol

Who is the conference aimed at?

The conference will be of interest to higher education lecturers, academic developers, professional learning support staff and those with responsibility for the management and quality assurance of assessment. This conference is for researchers and practitioners and is an opportunity to share and learn about both research and innovative practice in assessment in higher education.

 A thought-provoking and supportive conference

The 2019 conference will build on the success of our previous events at which we have made particular efforts to combine critical debate with a supportive and friendly environment. A combination of new thinking from keynote speakers, presentations on current research and sharing of innovative practice will provide a high-quality forum for debate.

An excellent conference, I think it is the best I have attended in terms of quality presenters, organisation and fellow delegates. I will be back’ (Delegate comment, June 2017).

In addition to two provocative keynotes we will be inviting proposals from delegates to share their research and practice.

The call for contributions is available on-line here
