The Advance HE Student Engagement Conference 2023 will be held in person on 20 April 2023 at Manchester Metropolitan University and will focus on What does student engagement mean to you? How does the meaning vary depending on who we are - a student, a lecturer, a senior leader? How do you measure student engagement? And how do we merge these understandings together to achieve excellent student outcomes for all?
This conference will build on the Advance HE Student Engagement Conferences in 2021 and 2022 to delve further into what we learn from the data, from students, from staff, from other countries, other types of institution? The return to a face-to-face conference will also allow much more networking and informal sharing alongside the formal conference elements to build together our understanding of student engagement.
The conference will take a particular focus on three areas for student engagement:
- Engagement & development through campus and online spaces – specifically spaces outside of the teaching classroom, non-teaching spaces.
- Engagement & development through institutional structures – governance structures, student representatives on committees how can this be more than a token gesture?
- Engagement & development through learning – with hybrid models of teaching how are we getting engagement on the VLE as well as in the classroom, is there learning to be gained between disciplines or are the opportunities discipline specific?
This conference will be of interest to those with responsibility for the student academic experience and student engagement more widely, SU teams wishing to widen their student engagement, course leaders seeking to have a more engaged cohort and others focused on the student experience and improving student outcomes.
