The University of Derby's Games Expo showcases current students’ final-year projects with an opportunity to play and discuss their games. This year’s theme is “ephemeral beauty” – the fleeting moments of beauty in a game world.

This lecture will focus on changes in how we talk about race and learning with a specific focus on creative pedagogy, student learning and attainment. It will unpack key themes such as a sense of belonging for staff and students of colour as well as discussing the awarding gap and student experiences.

At this conference, we would especially like to explore the interface between history (in its broadest sense including heritage) and human care (professional, non-professional and self-administered); achieving health and wellbeing through history-driven social connectedness. In addition, we welcome papers relevant to the field of health humanities in general.
