Conference 2019

Conference 2019



@ University of Exeter

15 – 17 April 2019


Join us in Exeter for three days of stimulating discussion, inspiring sessions, and even a cream tea or two!

This year we have three broad strands we encourage you to consider aligning with:

  • The theory and practice of learning development
  • Leadership and management in learning development
  • Innovative and critical approaches to learning development practice

We particularly welcome collaborative proposals between institutions or between organisations. You may choose to submit a proposal for a workshop, paper presentation, lightning talk, poster, or resource swap shop.


The deadline for proposals is Monday 12th November 2018.

The conference will offer plenty of CPD opportunities, including research development, HEA Fellowship and CeP/CeLP guidance, and updates from our programme of regional events.

Our keynote speakers this year are Professor Shân Wareing of London South Bank University and Dr Liz Morrish, independent.

We are also introducing a buddy scheme this year, for those attending their first conference. You’ll have an opportunity when you register to tell us if you would like a conference buddy, or if you would like to be a buddy yourself.

In 2019 the ALDinHE conference will be going paperless for the first time! Watch out for further details on how you can access all the delegate information you need.

Finally, we will once again be opening a fee waiver scheme for those whose institutions will not fund the cost of a conference place. These will be on an application-only basis. Further details will follow separately.

The ALDinHE conference is a supportive and welcoming environment that promotes creative collaboration between learning developers and is always popular, with a regular attendance of around 150 delegates from the UK and beyond.
