Ripping up the keynote rulebook: ALDCon23 guest editorial
Keywords:keynote; student voice; playfulness; unmasking the unseen.
The Association for Learning Development in Higher Education (ALDinHE) conference was hosted at the University of Portsmouth in June 2023 (ALDCon23). When planning for the keynotes - both online and in-person - we were guided by our commitments to: students at the centre; playfulness; and working to unmask events that are tacit and seldom discussed yet strongly affect both the student experience and our LD practice.
