Next SESN meetings... 13th Feb & 19th March 2024

Registrations are now open for the following two Student Engagement Staff Network (SESN) meetings:

  • Tuesday 13th February 2024 – online, 10.00am-1.00pm
    - see the event booking page for details and to register to attend.
  • Tuesday 19th March 2024 – online, 10.00am-1.00pm
    - see the event booking page for details and to register to attend.

Both meetings will take place via Zoom, from 10.00am to 1.00pm. The agendas will be circulated closer to the dates and they will reflect current developments in student engagement.

The network is open for staff in universities and colleges with student engagement and academic representation development roles. You can keep in touch with the whole network by signing up to SESN JISCMail at https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/sparqsSESN.

SESN is a great way to keep in touch with colleagues working in similar roles in other Scottish institutions/students’ associations, and also to discuss latest updates from the sector, so make sure to sign up and note it in your calendar!

We are also keen to learn more about what practices you implement in your role and institution, so if you would like to share examples of student engagement activities, best practice, or suggest other topics for SESN meetings, please let us know by emailing Gloria at gloria.laurini@sparqs.ac.uk.

We are planning on running the last SESN for 2024 in person, potentially as a joint event with the National Education Officers’ Network (NEON), so keep an eye on the sparqs’ news articles for further information.

For any further information, get in touch with Gloria Laurini, Development Consultant - gloria.laurini@sparqs.ac.uk
