An event for non-members who want to find out more about NERUPI or a refresher for current members
The NERUPI Network grew out of the imperative to assess the impact of higher education widening participation and equity interventions. Managers, practitioners, teachers, lecturers, researchers and funders are all keen to know where activities are having a positive effect. Guidance from the Office for Students requires higher education institutions charging higher fees and NCOP consortia to publish and submit an impact report each year together with an action plan outlining any necessary next steps. But measuring impact is not straightforward, particularly in this field where context is so critical and activities are frequently tailored for certain groups.
NERUPI provides opportunities for widening participation and equity evaluators to develop their expertise through a community of practice centred on the praxis-based NERUPI Framework. The Framework combines insights from both academic research and practical delivery to offer a rigorous yet flexible approach to evaluation that can meet the requirements of funders, practitioners and managers.
Annette Hayton, one of the co-developers of the Framework, will present at this event on the theory behind the Framework and its development as a tool for WP evaluation. Kate Holmes, NERUPI Development Officer, will look at how the Framework can be applied in practice.
The event will include:
- Welcome and Introduction to the NERUPI Network and Framework
- Using the NERUPI Framework for OfS Reporting
- The NERUPI Framework in Action (members only)
PLEASE NOTE: THE PROGRAMME FOR NON-MEMBERS CLOSES AT 13:15. FOR NERUPI MEMBERS, THE PROGRAMME CONTINUES TO 15:30. PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE FULL PROGRAMME FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.
