ICED conference call for reviewers 

Dear colleagues

As many of you know, the next conference of the International Consortium for Educational Development (ICED), on the subject of “The Future-Ready Graduate”, will be held in Zurich, Switzerland, on 15−18 June 2020 (see http://iced2020.ch/). HERDSA is a netowrk member of ICED.

In addition to keynote speeches and plenary panel discussions, conference presentation formats will involve presentations for parallel sessions; workshops; shorter panel discussions; and posters. We look forward to receiving many abstracts which address the interesting and timely conference topic, and this broad range of formats. For this purpose we need reviewers!

For your planning, the timeline looks like this:

1st Call for Contributions: 31 May 2019
Deadline for submissions 1st Call: 18 August 2019
Deadline for reviewing 1st Call: 22 September 2019

2nd Call for Contributions: 1 September 2019
Deadline for submissions 2nd Call: 20 October 2019
Deadline for reviewing 2nd Call: 17 November 2019

“Workload” per reviewer: Reviewing of not more than 10 abstracts of up to 400 characters in length (input handled by the review function in our EventsAIR conference tool). The review criteria will be published in May, pending approval from the ICED Board.

Would you be interested in signing up to be a reviewer? If so, please follow this link:

Dear colleagues
May we cordially invite you to attend RAISE2019– celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the founding of RAISE. Delegate registration is open for the Researching, Advancing & Inspiring Student Engagement (RAISE) Conference. Please pass on to non-members of the list. 
We particularly welcome participation from students (students pay a very low fee). We have moved to a two day format this year but this is followed by a Development Day on the 6th with workshops and SIGS at the same venue.

The conference aims to offer a forum and platform showcasing practice and research about, student engagement (SE) and working in partnership. Staff in all roles, all students, and others interested in university and college higher education are welcome. 

There are over 100 presentations and keynotes from Cathy Bovill, Brice MacFarlane and Colin Bryson.

We still have capacity for posters (those accepted will benefit from the presenter discount).
