London, Anglia and Southern Regions Conference Wednesday 12 November 2008, 9.15am – 6.00pm Birkbeck, University of London Join us for this one-day professional development event for members of the London, Anglia and Southern regions. The event is being co-ordinated by members of the three regions. The conference includes two plenary sessions, enabling delegates to hear from Malcolm Gillies, Vice-Chancellor of City University, London, on the theme of administration for education and research; and from London Higher on their work, especially in relation to London 2012. The conference’s working sessions are focused around two themes: professional development and the student learning experience. The professional development strand features working sessions on the AUA PG Certificate; the AUA’s Leadership, Governance and Management project; committee servicing and the Freedom of Information Act; as well as balancing work and life: a flexible approach. Speakers include Terry Bransbury, London Regional Co-ordinator; Maureen Skinner and Alison Robinson, Chair and Executive Director of the Association; Jean Grier, author of several AUA Good Practice Guides; and Faith Marchal, an HR Consultant specialising in diversity for Anglia Ruskin University. The student learning experience theme includes: Professor Claire Callendar talking about student bursaries; Chris Hallas, Academic Registrar at UCL, speaking about student service delivery; Kenton Lewis of St George’s, University of London, discussing widening participation: philosophy, policy and practice; the Equality Challenge Unit on equality issues in HE; John Ryan, Registrar and Secretary of the University of Worcester presenting on student retention; and Michelle Morgan, Teaching and Learning Co-ordinator at Kingston University, revealing the importance of ‘OUTduction’ in the student lifecycle.
