Why attend CAN 2019?

The Change Agents’ Network (CAN) promotes student-staff partnership in higher and further education. It’s a community of staff and students working together as change agents, pioneers, ambassadors, or in other roles in partnership on a huge variety of teaching and learning projects.

The CAN conference is an opportunity to showcase this groundbreaking partnership work, and engage staff and students from HE and FE institutions in a community of experience and best practice.

In 2019 the CAN conference will focus on 'The evolving landscape of staff-student partnerships’.
