Improving Student Learning annual symposium

In 1993, the first Improving Student Learning Symposium was held at Warwick University in the UK. From then until its end in 2012, it became an established event on the international calendar, with up to 200 participants from over 15 countries at each conference. 

The major aim of the Improving Student Learning Symposia was to provide a forum which brought together those who are primarily researchers into learning in higher education and those who are primarily practitioners concerned more pragmatically with improving their practice, but from whichever starting point, papers were only accepted if they take a sufficiently scholarly, research-based approach.
