MSA's 3rd Annual International Conference In Higher Eduacation

You are invited to attend our MSA-Greenwich third annual international collaborative conference on Higher Education. The conference is titled Student engagement, inclusivity and well-being in the digital era and takes place at MSA University (SSB Halls & B206), Egypt, on Wednesday 3rd April, 2019 at 9 am - 3 pm. There are participants from UK (our partner University of Greenwich) and Egypt (MSA University). Our one-day conference will explore the challenges, opportunities, and transformations that are shaping how we respond to determining the future of Higher Education in Egypt, and globally, in ways that enables all students to succeed at university and in their future careers. In our intensifying technological environments, does technology hinder or help us to teach inclusively? Academic staff are increasingly employing technologies in their curriculum design and teaching to stimulate and encourage learning and provide an enhanced, and hopefully, more inclusive student experience. Educators’ roles are changing and it is a good time for us to critically reflect how we can best support all students throughout their higher education journey: what are the unintended consequences of introducing technology, how can we help all our students to thrive in the digital world? Where can technology create distinctive opportunities and support diverse groups of students across the subjects we teach? Where might it benefit students to stop using technology? What role might students play in determining their experience? Through examining the practices that take place in physical and virtual learning spaces, we provide a platform to share and contextualise our own experiences with colleagues from MSA and our UK partner institutions. The five conference sub-themes are: 1. Maximising student learning (curriculum design & delivery, transition, internationalising the curriculum, metrics and analytics)
2. Well-being and resilience (international student transition, enriching the student and staff experience, strengthening personal tutoring and academic support)
3. Inclusiveness (exploring innovative pedagogies and sustainable approaches that increase access and participation, supporting differentiation and personalisation.
4. Using students as agents of change, (student representation, student voice, student experience, virtual and physical spaces for improved staff-student interaction).
5. Engaging employers (designing for employability, work placements & internships, alumni).
