The theme for 2023 is Rethinking the right to Higher Education in challenging times and this year’s Universities at Medway Learning and Teaching Conference will seek to explore how to build a strong evidence and research-base from which effective strategies and interventions can be developed for enhancing accessibility, acceptability and adaptability in HE, and generally how to assure students’ rights in a global changing context. All these will be examined under a social justice lens, which examines the very structure of higher education itself and what the systems and institutions of higher education need to modify to accommodate students’ diverse backgrounds and needs. Thus, this conference aims at sharing and promoting exemplary practices, approaches, strategies, interventions, both at a macro-institutional and a micro-pedagogical level that can aid in rethinking issues on the Right to HE in the current challenging context more holistically.

Keynote speaker

The keynote speaker is Dr Paul Ian Campbell, the Inaugural Director of the Leicester Institute for Inclusivity in Higher Education. He is also an award winning academic and Associate Professor in the Sociology of race and inclusion at the University of Leicester.
