Student Engagement Staff Network meeting


- Please register as usual.
- joining instructions (including VC details) will be issued prior to the meeting.


Our Student Engagement Staff Network (SESN) will have its first full-day meeting of the 2020-21 academic year on 18th November, and will be an opportunity to explore student engagement in the new learning experience.

The agenda will not be finalised until closer to the time, to be responsive to the issues that continue to arise following the shift to a blended model of delivery across the sector.  However, we can say that content is likely to include workshops on key national issues in quality and student engagement, and institutional case studies on representation, training and partnership activities. All sessions will reflect the changed nature of our sector and the importance of institutions working closely with their students.

The event hashtag, for use on Twitter, is #sparqsSESN

While the event will run from 10.00am to 4.00pm there will be regular screen breaks throughout the day. It is free to join, and details of the joining arrangements will be circulated in due course to those who register.

As we are not constrained by venue size, there is no limit to the number of participants from institutions. We still require you to register, though, so we know numbers and can keep the event secure. As usual we are specifically inviting staff from institutions or students’ associations in Scotland with student engagement or academic representation responsibilities.

Online meeting security

The meeting will be run online via videoconference.  Details of how to join will be sent to delegates in the joining instructions nearer the time of the meeting. 

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. 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.
