We are delighted to share a blog, written by our Director, Eve Lewis, recently published on the WONKHE website. Published as part of QAA Scotland's ongoing 20 Years of Enhancement celebrations, Eve's blog is around why quality enhancement needs student engagement, reflecting on the evolution of student engagement since the introduction of Scotland’s enhancement-led approach to quality in 2003. Eve explores the ways that the student voice is supported, encouraged and valued in higher education in Scotland.
Find out more about QAA Scotland's 20 Years of Enhancement on the Enhancement Themes website, which involves a whole programme of activity across this academic year, drawing on sector colleagues’ and students’ experience of the enhancement-led approach, creating opportunities for critical reflection, considering lessons learned, and looking to the future of enhancement in Scotland.
Featured on the website is the recording from the first virtual panel of the programme, which was chaired by Eve on 14th November 2022, around ‘Valuing student representation in quality enhancement’. It brought together past sabbatical officers and former ELIR student reviewers to discuss the impact of student representation in quality enhancement and how they have used lessons from their student representative experience to inform their current roles within the Scottish and international higher education sectors.
Take a look at the website to find out what else is coming up in the new year, and join the conversation online using #Enhancement20
