Welcome to RAISE 2018

On behalf of the RAISE18 Organising Committee, welcome to the website for our 2018 conference which will take place at Sheffield Hallam University on 5th to 7th September. The major theme of this conference is celebrating our collaborative approaches to student engagement. That might refer to how students and staff work together in partnership, how institutions work with colleagues beyond their institutions on shared student engagement projects and initiatives, and/or how we work with partner organisations to explore new opportunities and dimensions to student engagement. We look forward to hearing about a variety of ideas, practices, and areas of research and development, through a range of papers, participatory workshops, posters, Pecha Kuchas, panel discussions and keynote addresses; not to mention plenty of time for networking and establishing new contacts.
