Student Engagement Staff Network meeting


- joining instructions (including VC details) will be issued prior to the meeting


This is the first meeting of our Student Engagement Staff Network (SESN) of 2022, taking place on Thursday 27th January.  It continues our series of monthly, half-day events for staff in student engagement and academic representation support roles.

Our agenda is yet to be confirmed, but will reflect current developments in student engagement. If you would like to suggest topics for this or other SESN meetings please let us know.

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

The link will open from 9.45am, and the meeting itself will begin at 10.00am and finish by 1.00pm. 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 using Zoom, with the following security measures:

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.
