With consideration to its commitment to maintain its participation in enhancement initiatives within the Welsh HE sector, the University of Wales is pleased to announce that it is involved in the Higher Education Academy’s (HEA) Transition, Retention and Attainment (Wales) Strategic Enhancement Programmes 2015-16.
A joint project with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD), the initiative is led by Professor Simon Haslett, Pro Vice-Chancellor (International and Enhancement), and will focus on developing Life Design for the enhancement of the student experience. Life Design relates to the holistic approach to the students’ future, considering the whole life needs rather than a narrow focus on career or ‘employability’, for example.
As part of this, UWTSD will be hosting the Wales Nexus Conference, its annual Learning and Teaching conferenceat its Carmarthen campus. Held over two days from the 23rd – 24th of March 2016, Collaborative Centres of the University of Wales are invited to register to attend the event.
The University recognises that the enhancement activity previously undertaken within HEA Wales sector-wide initiatives has impacted positively on teaching and learning, and in maintaining its support for such initiatives it aims to enhance further the student experience within the Welsh HE sector.
