Programme Overview

Main Programme

The main conference (Thursday and Friday) provides opportunities to hear from educators and researchers about their work, either through short-and-snappy oral bites or the more detailed lecture series.

There will also be a poster session for delegates to present and talk about their work in a more relaxed and informal setting. And for a more hands-on experience there are two workshop sessions for you to get stuck in with new techniques and technologies.

Finally we have three plenary sessions spread across the main programme, focusing on Physics, Chemistry and Higher Education.

Conference Dinner

Our conference dinner will be held on Thursday evening at Kelham Island Museum. Delegates will be greeted with a glass of bubbly in ye olde industrial street, and you can wander the museum at your leisure. Dinner will be announced by Europes largest working steam engine, the River Don Engine.

The conference dinner is an optional extra that you can choose when registering. A menu will be sent to delegates after registration closes to allow for any dietary requirements to be passed on to the venue.

All parts of the museum that will be open to us are fully accessible.
