QSN 16th Annual Conference: New Directions in Quality

Thursday 7th Sep 2023 - Friday 8th Sep 2023



Evolving Quality Assurance in a World of Data, Digital and Innovation

7-8th September, 2023, Conference Aston, Birmingham


As the new chair of QSN, I am delighted to welcome you to the QSN annual conference and look forward to seeing colleagues old and new from across the HE sector. Although many of us have returned to in-person working arrangements, the delights of an in-person conference are not lost on us. Amidst the post-Covid, industrial action related and cost of living challenges our students have faced, the rise of artificial intelligence tools have presented us with all too real challenges: do we embrace or resist these advancements? Are they being used for ill or for good? In the world of quality, how do we enhance and assure to bring about benefits for the student learning experience which retain integrity and good standing? How can our sector regulators guide and advise us?

If you have asked yourself these or similar questions, then this is the conference for you! We look forward to hearing your experiences and views and learning together as we embark on what will undoubtedly be another year of change, challenge and opportunity.

You can find a preview of our programme and workshops below with the full schedule to be announced soon.

Best wishes,
Maureen McLaughlin
QSN Chair
