While student engagement is of crucial importance as both a means and objective at the strategic level, there is also a practical level too.
Many materials and resources are created to help staff and students in a very real and practical way to consider how they can identify and develop ways of engaging students in shaping their learning experience.
sparqs has, over recent years, produced a range of very interactive, participative tools that can help universities, colleges and students’ associations, and has often helped institutions to develop their own customised resources. These cover topics as diverse as student engagement in college boards of management, departmental representation, feedback on assessment, student officer approaches to the learning experience, and the development of course representatives.
To celebrate, highlight and share these resources, sparqs will be holding two events in May or June, one for each of the university and college sectors. The aim of these events will be to gather a range of staff and students such as quality managers, student engagement practitioners and students’ association officers in a highly interactive and participative environment. The events will present a range of resources to encourage participants to think about how they can use them in very meaningful ways to enhance student engagement within their institutions.
