Date(s) - 22/09/2021 - 24/09/2021

SICSA Education is a proud sponsor of the 2021 Higher Education Institutional Research (HEIR) conference at the University of St Andrews.

About the HEIR Network 

The UK and Ireland Higher Education Institutional Research (HEIR) network was established in 2008 to bring together institutional research (IR) enthusiasts and practitioners working in the UK and Ireland higher education sectors.

The HEIR network believes that IR is playing an increasingly important role in enhancing learning and teaching practice and providing timely and relevant evidence to aid management decision making at all levels within UK and Irish higher education institutions.

The network is coordinated by a voluntary Planning Group that focuses on supporting the network through providing networking opportunities and facilitating host institutions in organising the annual HEIR conference.

What we do:

The activities of the network are focused on achieving the following four objectives:

  • To build an IR community in the UK and Ireland that can help individuals develop their knowledge and expertise and contribute to the building of capacity for IR across the sector.
  • To be a forum for discussion around contemporary issues and for sharing ideas, experiences, practices and solutions to issues and problems.
  • To inform HE policy and practice through engaging directly with policy-makers.
  • To work with other bodies with the common goal of impacting HE policy and practice.

Please visit the Network’s website and join the mailing list.

The conference will provide a forum for institutional research enthusiasts and practitioners to share the best evidence-based ideas and practices in enhancing inclusive learning and teaching and management decision making within Higher Education.
