Student Engagement Staff Network meeting


The third meeting of our Student Engagement Staff Network (SESN) for academic year 2022-23 continued our series of half-day events for staff in student engagement and academic representation support roles.  It took 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 allow staff to keep abreast of developments and how their instituions can contribute to the shaping of the tertiary arrangements.

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

The link opened at 9.45am, and the meeting itself began at 10.00am and finished by 1.00pm. It was free to join, but delegates were required to register, in order that the event could be kept secure.

As usual we specifically invited staff from institutions or students’ associations in Scotland with student engagement or academic representation responsibilities.
