AMOSSHE needs the imaginative input of members and the broader sector in order to be truly relevant and productive for Student Services professionals. Your participation shapes the agenda and ensures that the AMOSSHE Winter Conference is relevant, useful, and inspiring.
Leading a workshop or presenting at our conference is a good way to explore new ideas, get feedback on your work, develop your professional confidence and standing, and start new discussions. You or your colleagues may have undertaken initiatives or research that others can learn from, you may have inspiring success stories to tell, or there may be challenges that you want to explore in a structured way in order to share good practice and develop new strategies.
As another benefit of contributing to the event, one session leader for each accepted proposal can claim a free delegate place at the Winter Conference.
If you have an idea for a session proposal, but you’re not sure how to develop it, or whether it’s suitable, please get in touch!
You can submit a proposal as follows:
Please submit your proposal for consideration by 17:00 on Wednesday 9 November 2016.
You will need to provide brief statements about:
AMOSSHE will give you feedback about your proposals no later than Wednesday 23 November 2016.
You can submit as many session proposals for consideration as you like. For each one, please submit a separate form.
The Winter Conference team (Executive members Jayne Aldridge and Fay Sherrington, with the National Office staff) will carefully consider all session proposals, and choose the successful proposals by asking the following questions:
Your session proposal should answer these questions satisfactorily.
The AMOSSHE National Office team will let you know whether your proposal is successful no later than Wednesday 23 November 2016. If you’re successful, the team will give you feedback about your proposal, and may make suggestions to further enhance the session. We’ll also discuss and agree with you an advance date for you to send a copy of your completed presentation and any other session materials. These materials will be made available in the members’ area of this website following the conference, unless there are particular issues of confidentiality or inaccuracy that would make this inappropriate. The conference team will do their best to accommodate room seating and presenter support requests where possible.
AMOSSHE can’t contribute to expenses, but one session leader for each accepted proposal can claim a free delegate place at the Winter Conference.
