Innovation and the student experience #abslt13
23 Apr 2013
Broadcast from Nottingham

'Innovation and the student experience' - The ABS Learning & Teaching Conference 2013 in association with the Higher Education Academy, The British Management Association and Nottingham Trent University.  

Learning and teaching in universities is in the spotlight now more than ever. Changes in the undergraduate fee system, large and diverse classes, the NSS and technological change are all having an influence, but what exactly constitutes a quality student experience with students, employers and business schools as partners has yet to be clearly articulated. This conference provides a forum for those involved in business education to exchange excellence and discuss issues in teaching practice and pedagogic research.
