QQI will host a conference in partnership with HEA, ISSE, IUA, THEA & USI on ‘Best Practice in Student-Centred Approaches in Education and Training’ at the Printworks in Dublin Castle on 20 November 2018. 

This event is aimed at those interested in Academic Affairs, Teaching & Learning, Student Experience, Quality Assurance, Community Engagement and International Student Learning.

This conference will explore many areas including:

• How can we implement student-centred approaches and support student engagement with real impact in higher and further education and training? 
• What does best practice in student engagement look and feel like? 
• Who is leading the way in placing the student at the heart of teaching and learning?

Educators and students throughout the country will come together to discuss these questions and much more. 

Attendees will also hear the perspectives of international and national experts, students, educators and policy-makers in a range of diverse areas:

• Student Engagement Practices
• Higher Education and some Further Education and Training Approaches
• International Student Experience
