At the sixth annual 'Students First' Symposium - its second year held online - education leaders and innovators will prompt us to think about student and staff wellbeing during and beyond COVID, academic integrity, diversity of support, and new models for delivery, while we seek both a compassionate and data-driven approach to putting students first. Read the 2020 recap from Symposia Chair, Prof Judyth Sachs.
