QUES Call for proposals


We invite proposals for presentations, posters and research collaborations.

Presentations and posters must address one or more of the three aspects of the Showcase theme, through innovative practice in higher education or research into teaching and learning. We encourage presentations and posters that have been presented at a previous conference or are based on an existing publication.


Presentations are invited via your institution. Your QPEN representative will invite submissions and organise the required institutional endorsement.


Posters addressing innovative teaching practice or research into higher education teaching are welcome. Posters previously presented are particularly welcome. Maximum poster size is A0 (portrait) or A1 (landscape) and should be brought on the day. Poster presentations will take place during the lunch break.

Poster proposals should use the Poster Proposal Form.
