Delivering Student Conferences: Avril Buchanan and Louise Buckingham

Avril and Louise explained the reasons for and benefits to students learning for the development of academic skills.  After evaluation of student feedback and communications they decided to develop a conference with a variety of skills for academic success, whereby the students could make a choice as to which workshop they would attend. This is a very useful way to touch a large number of students and make contact with those unlikely to initially ask for learning support.

They give a detailed account of the conference and student feedback on the value of the conference.
