This half-day event was aimed at college officers and students' association staff and provided valuable information about how best to engage with the Student Satisfaction & Engagement Survey. Thirteen Colleges participated in the survey, which will eventually be going Scotland-wide. From highlighting examples of excellent teaching, to finding where the students' association should focus its efforts improving learner engagement, it is important that student officers and students' association staff know how to make sense of the data, and how to use it to enhance quality at your institution.
The event demonstrated successful techniques from other students' associations for increasing survey participation and for using data to create change within institutions. Seamus Spencer from the Scottish Funding Council gave a short keynote presentation about this project's importance nationally.
The event was primarily most useful for colleges engaged in the Student Satisfaction & Engagement Survey pre-pilot, but was also open to other students' associations who want to make better use of existing survey data at their institution.
