In 2018 the Association for Learning Development in Higher Education will hold its annual conference at the University of Leicester from 26th to 28th March.

The conference programme will include workshops, paper presentations and lightning talks relating to all aspects of learning development practice.


The deadline for proposals has now passed. Please contact for late submissions.

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the ALDinHE conference and we are looking forward to celebrating in Leicester with our best conference yet.

Join like-minded professionals for stimulating debate and discussion, contribute to the research and evidence base for Learning Development, and share your innovative and inspiring practice with a friendly and supportive audience.

As always, this welcoming conference will provide opportunities to explore all aspects of learning development theory, practice and policy. This year, we are particularly interested in exploring the theoretical foundations for:

  • How we think about learning development
    • Managing professional identities
    • Pathways for professional development
    • The problems learning development can solve
    • The value of learning development across the sector
  • How we enact learning development
    • Working with students and colleagues
    • Understanding why tools and techniques work
    • Flexibility within a changing sector
    • Opportunities and challenges

We welcome proposals for workshops, paper presentations, lightning talks and posters.
