    10th Improving Student Learning Symposium
    Improving Student Learning: Theory and Practice - 10 years on 
    September 4th - 6th, 2002, Sheraton Hotel and Tower, Brussels

    In 1993, the first Improving Student Learning Symposium was held at Warwick University in England. Since then it has become an established event on the international calendar, averaging some 200 participants from over 15 countries at each conference.

    The major aim of the Improving Student Learning Symposia is to provide a forum which brings 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 are only accepted if they take a sufficiently scholarly, research-based approach.

    The theme for this tenth anniversary symposium, Theory and Practice, is deliberately a return to the theme of the first, and an invitation to take stock of what we as a community have learnt over the past decade. What are the implications of current theory for good practice, and what possible implications may practical experience have for the need to revise or question previously held theories?
