International AHE Conference 2 July 2020 in Manchester UK

Due to the unprecedented global challenges concerning the Covid-19 virus, we regret to inform you that we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the AHE Conference 2020 that was due to take place on Thursday 02 July 2020 at the Manchester MacDonald Hotel, Manchester, England.  

Going forward, our revised plan is to incorporate this year’s conference into our main extended International AHE Conference to be held 30 June 2021-02 July 2021 at the Manchester MacDonald Hotel, Manchester, England.  Our forthcoming keynote speaker David Boud has kindly confirmed he will now plan to attend in 2021 and Naomi Winstone has also accepted our invitation to act as a 2021 keynote speaker.   We would be delighted if you decide to attend this event.

It is important to emphasise that this decision is not in response to any specific developments at the University of Cumbria but in direct response to the official Government advice and guidance published on Monday 16 March 2020 regarding social distancing. 

We are all dealing daily with very difficult and challenging circumstances during this unprecedented public health crisis, but we thank you for your continued support of the AHE network and look forward to getting together as a community again in future, when we shall keep on improving our assessment for learning practices.
