Winchester Student Engagement represented in the Journal of Educational Innovation, Partnership and Change

Last week we were delighted to see three articles from Winchester's Student Engagement practices disseminated in the Jisc Change Agent Network (CAN) Journal of Educational Innovation, Partnership and Change. Liz Dunne – Director of REACT, gives an interesting insight to Student Engagement in 2016 in the preface, exploring what SE means today and lists a variety of current models used across Higher Education. Also, Liz's article features a model we have already used in a workshop as part of REACT, offering four models of Student Engagement for practices to be compared to and inspired by.

We were especially excited to see a journal article from two Student Fellows from 2014-15, Lauren Dickinson and Antonia Fox with their article Who owns the student voice? A study of students' perceptions of student voice in higher education which investigates the wide range of student experiences of student voice at the University of Winchester (Dickinson & Fox, 2016). Also I was happy to see an article Dr Stuart Sims, Savannah King (SU President), Yaz El Hakim and I wrote last academic year, evaluating the impact of the first year of the Student Fellows Scheme. This was an innovative attempt at assessing the impact of a Student Engagement participation on an institution.
