Researching and Evaluating Widening Participation - Next Steps

Monday, 06 July 2015

Joint seminar series

SRHE Access and Widening Participation Network

UALL Widening Participation and Access Network

 Universities with Access Agreements are developing a range of initiatives to attract and retain students from social groups currently under-represented in higher education. As a result there is an increased emphasis at both national and institutional level on assessing the longer term impact of widening participation strategies.

This seminar series is designed to broaden the scope of current work in the area, drawing on the growing body of academic research to inform and develop approaches to evaluation and impact assessment.

The seminars are grouped into seven areas of current interest and will demonstrate a range of methodological approaches through concrete examples related to the theme of the session, linked to case studies undertaken by universities.

The seventh and final session will draw together the insights gathered over the course of the series and focus on future developments in research and evaluation that will inform strategies to widen  participation higher education.
