We are a team comprising members from Engagement and Information (Quality), the Centre for Learning and Teaching, and the Students’ Union.
Working together, and bringing our individual areas of specialism to this partnership, has provided both a productive approach to a range of facets of student engagement, and connected three areas of the university that previously did not have a joined-up approach.
The types of activities we have focused on include recruiting school-based Student Engagement champions; holding a Student Engagement staff away day; and attending local meetings with champions to establish rapport and get a good idea of the context of Student Engagement, and hard to reach students, within each School.
This work is foregrounding a more strategic approach to student engagement, through the development of a student engagement plan.
