Student Engagement Staff Network meeting


The second meeting of our Student Engagement Staff Network (SESN) for the 2021-22 year took place on Thursday 4th November, part of our series of monthly, half-day events for staff in student engagement and academic representation support roles.

There was a session around the management and support of course reps, looking at course rep systems beyond introductory training, including institutional case studies.  There was also a split college/university session focused on the quality arrangements in both sectors and we finished with our usual final half hour of open, informal chat.
