Each year one of the ACED member departments hosts a 2-day conference open to all, whether academic or industrial, involved in developing and delivering JBM accredited degree programmes.  This year, the conference will be hosted by Heriot-Watt University, with the Conference dinner being held under the shadow of Edinburgh Castle.

Topics this year include sketching, student retention, student engagement, ethics and overseas exchange programmes. There will also be as typically happens, an update from the JBM. The full schedule is attached here: Final Programme ACED Edinburgh 2017
