3rd International Conference on Institutional Leadership, Learning & Teaching (ILLT) London-UK, November 2017






This International Conference recognises that Institutional Leadership and Learning and Teaching should not be viewed as incompatible. It affords an opportunity to highlight current trends as well as examples of innovation and enlightened thought leadership. Governance, funding, human resources and stakeholder engagement are as pertinent as curricula development, assessment and work-life balance. Teaching & Learning, Research and Knowledge Formation, Institutional Leadership and Institutions, the Community and the Economics of Education are all elements that are at the very essence of why this conference is of particular value.

For the discerning London offers a wealth of possibilities. As well as being the most ethnically diverse city on the face of the planet it is a convenient transport hub which ensures the constant exchange of ideas. With its extraordinary rich history, thriving arts scene and tolerant outlook it has become a haven for communities from every corner of the globe. London is a city with many faces, from the quaint and archaic to the ultramodern and anarchic. Its museums, libraries and academic institutions are some of the most revered in the world and continue to exercise a magnetic pull that attracts the finest minds. No visit to London would be complete without a visit to one of its great treasure houses such as the British Library (, the British Museum ( or Tate Modern (, but for the real gems one needs to seek out the lesser known locations, the likes of the Sir John Soane’s Museum (, the Imperial War Museum (, Kew Gardens ( and the Wallace Collection ( Travel around London can be a trifle daunting at first, but there are a whole raft of options and rather than paying for single tickets if often makes good sense to buy a day travel card which will enable you to use buses, the London Underground (known locally as The Tube) and Overground Trains within the capital – for further details be sure to visit: London is an expensive city, especially when it comes to accommodation and transportation, that said, if you know where to look bargains can be found. Whatever your passion, be it books, shopping, sport or the theatre you will discover that London has it all except possibly the weather.

Additional Information

Notes For Author
Presentation timing: A full paper is normally allocated approximately 12 minutes for presentation followed by 3 minutes for questions from the audience. The track chair will keep an eye on time and will alert you when time is beginning to run short by holding up cards indicating ‘3’, ‘2’ and ‘1’ – these being the number of minutes that you have remaining. Please note that we actively encourage constructive questions from the audience. Your co-operation in bringing your presentation to a close within the time specified is essential to the smooth running of the conference and to be fair to other presenters.
Presentation equipment: Presentation rooms will be equipped with a laptop and projector screen for PowerPoint presentations (Please note there will not be a transparency projector available).
Presentation: The Academy requests that PowerPoint presentations be sent in good time so that they can be uploaded onto the conference laptop. Please email these with you name and the conference that you are due to present at to: It is also a sensible precaution to make sure that you bring a copy of your presentation with you on a flash drive or USB. Any presentation that has not be submitted in time will not be pre-loaded and remain the responsibility of the presenter.
Handouts: should you wish to you are welcome to bring along the full text or other supporting document to handout to delegates. Please ensure that a copy is handed to the track chair of your session.
Punctuality - Please ensure that you attend your session promptly and are aware of the order of speakers from the conference proceedings.
Presenting in absentia: Occasionally there are some delegates who are unable to attend in person, and who wish to have their paper presented via a video clip. We would ask that these are of no more than 10 minutes in length. Most presenters upload them onto YouTube and then send across the YouTube like to the email address mentioned above. The Academy staff are happy to collate any questions arising in response to the presentation and email them across to the author/authors.

Conference Tracks: The Academy works assiduously to organize papers to fit in with the relevant tracks. There are occasions when individual authors request that papers request that papers be moved to fit in with flights etc. Please note that whilst The Academy will do its level best to accommodate individual needs, it must be mindful of ensuring that the conference as a whole is balanced and appropriately structured.

Authorship: Presenters have a moral obligation to acknowledge all contributions to their paper, both orally at the time of presentation and by referencing authors in papers submitted to conference.
Republishing a Presentation: Authors are free to publish their presentation elsewhere without fear of copyright problems and without permission from the ABRM. However, conference papers that are selected for and published in our journals are copyrighted by the Journal of Business and Retail Management Research with the copyright given back to the author. We do this because we need to protect ourselves in case the paper has been plagiarized. Papers are only published in our journal with the consent of the author.
Abstract-Only Publications: Authors often elect to publish only the abstract of their presentation in the conference proceedings. This effectively gives the author until the conference date to complete the paper. This also means that the author is free to submit the paper to another journal without copyright consequences. This is possible because the paper has never been published elsewhere since only the abstract was published in the proceedings. The ABRM does not copyright the proceedings, which means that authors are still free to do as they see fit with the paper. Consequently, authors can claim academic credit for a conference presentation, a refereed conference proceedings publication, and possibly a journal publication from one piece of research.
