Regional Symposia

As well as the annual conference, ALDinHE hosts several one-day events, known as Regional Symposia, throughout the year, to encourage building local communities and networks of practice, as well as inspiring others to host future events.

Whether you are new to Learning Development or an old hand, Regional Symposia are a fantastic and accessible opportunity to learn from and share practice with each other, and contribute to your own research and professional development.
