The SRHE Annual Research Conference is planned as a participative event at which delegates presenting their own work will also participate in the discussions in plenary sessions and the presentations of the work of others.

Additional Events and excursions available for all SRHE Conference Delegates

We are pleased this year to be able to offer all delegates at the SRHE Conference 2010 the opportunity to take advantage of a range of events, both cultural and academic, whilst visiting Wales for the Conference. We are able to offer these events through a link up with Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) at The University and Wales, Newport. They have very helpfully organised pre and post conference events for all out delegates to provide an opportunity to experience more than the Conference Resort venue-excellent as it is. We do hope that Conference delegates from around the UK as well as our international delegates will want to take advantage of these opportunities.
