Student Engagement Staff Network meeting


Online event via Zoom


This is the third meeting of our Student Engagement Staff Network (SESN) for academic year 2022-23 and continues our series of half-day events for staff in student engagement and academic representation support roles.  It will take place on Thursday 2nd March 2023, from 10.00am until 1.00pm, via Zoom. 

The SESN meetings are of particular importance this year, as the sector moves towards a tertiary approach to quality.  The meetings will allow staff to keep abreast of developments and how their instituions can contribute to the shaping of the tertiary arrangements. 

You can view the tentative Agenda, which reflects feedback from network members about its content and includes 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. Please make sure you add the event to your calendar.

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.

If you want to discuss this meeting further please contact Gloria Laurini, Development Consultant – gloria.laurini@sparqs.ac.uk 07966 104056.
