Our Student Engagement Staff Network had a short, online meeting by Zoom on Wednesday 24th June, to allow for an informal catch-up. There was a very short update from sparqs with some questions for discussion, but the time was mostly free for practitioners to share experiences as we all continue to support student engagement during lockdown. Participants were invited to bring their own coffee and cake!
You can view the presentation from the session.
The event hashtag, for use on Twitter, was #sparqsSESN
The event began at 11.00am and finished by 12.30pm.
Participants were required to register to enable us to keep the event secure. As usual we specifically invited staff from institutions or students’ associations in Scotland with student engagement or academic representative support responsibilities.
Online meeting security
The meeting was run using Zoom, with the following security process:
You do not need an account to join the meeting and you don’t need to download the app. Simply copy and paste the link you receive in your joining instructions directly into your browser. The link is not available on social media or our website and is sent by email only to those who have registered for the event. To ensure only those who have registered join the meeting, we ask that you do not share the link with anyone. If you are not an authenticated Zoom user (i.e. you don’t have an account) you will be asked to input a password to join the meeting. When you join, you will go to a “waiting room”, a member of sparqs staff will then admit only those who have registered. If the identity of a person is not known, they will not be admitted, so please enter your name on Zoom as the name you registered to attend.
