09:00 - 09:45 Special Interest Group Discussion 4: HESPA and Scottish Planners: Planning Across the Nations

This interactive session will include a short introduction from the Chair of the Scottish Planners Forum, before leading into an interactive discussion. The intention is for planners from all nations across the UK to engage to discuss areas of shared objective and where policy directions or interactions with regulatory and funding bodies have diverged.

The session will have a focus on the practical and pragmatic – what can we learn from each other? How do we build partnerships between nations on shared challenges? What practices work well in different nations that we could deploy?

Gavin Lee, Director of Strategic Planning and Development, University of the West of Scotland
 09:00 - 09:45 Special Interest Group Discussion 5: Launch of the Statutory Returns HESPA Group

Have you often received weird looks from colleagues when you talked about a “dormant student with no tact” or “how to match cost centers to HECoS” or a “fundcomp doesn’t match the modout”? We are launching the Statutory Returns (SR) group that aims at bringing the community of return compilers (finance, student, staff, estate, …) together and include also whoever who has a direct or indirect interest for SR. We aim at being fully inclusive and discuss a wide range of topics, including what we can harvest from all those amazing submissions. Come with ideas and tell us what matters the most to you!

TimeSession informationSpeakers
11:30 - 12:30 Workshop C1: Linking Strategy and Risk

When a new strategy is launched, organisations encounter strategic risks - risks from adopting the new strategy or risks in trying to deliver it. Many institutions operate strategy & planning and risk management in separate silos, potentially missing the opportunity of combining the strengths of each discipline. This session will explore different approaches being taken by two higher education institutions to link their institutional risk management approach to their strategy, and will discuss the challenges and opportunities they are facing.
Paul Griffiths, Director of Risk Management, University of Leeds

Dr Liz Rogers, Risk & Business Continuity Manager, University of Dundee
11:30 - 12:30 Workshop C2: Exploring a National Standard for Online and Blended Learning 

This session will explore the options and considerations around formulating a national standard for online and blended learning. Drawing upon recent work in Scotland, it will outline possible approaches to enhancing the learner experience in those situations where the learning is delivered digitally. It will address questions as to the balance between student expectations and learning provider creativity, between quality assurance of the online aspects of learning design and the support needed for enhancing the learner experience. The session will also consider the practical considerations of providers emerging from two years of emergency online provision, and what the reasonable expectations of staff are and what the required staff support might look like.
Jason Miles-Campbell, Head of Jisc Scotland & Jisc Northern Ireland, Jisc
11:30 - 12:30 Workshop C3: A Maturity Model for University Planning

This session will identify best practice at each stage of the planning cycle, which will help you to have structured conversations about how you can improve your planning process.

15:00 - 16:00 Plenary 5: The data decade revisited

At the 2020 HESPA conference, just before the pandemic, Mark looked at the opportunity and challenges for the new decade, and how planners might use data more widely and deeply to keep their institution (and profession) moving forward. Two years, and a pandemic, later how have the strategic co-ordinates of the data decade changed? And how should planners respond?
