Welcome to our Resource Library. It contains an ever-growing range of examples about student engagement in quality - from shaping learning to institutional governance.
During the COVID-19 crisis, while some resources are contained within this Resource Library (under the COVID-19 Resources category), many are links to institutional and sector agency websites, so please visit the resources area of our COVID-19 information hub for further resources and support.
You are welcome to search for useful resources that can help you reflect on and enhance your own practice; and of course we encourage you to submit your own examples of effective practice to help expand and share the sector's wealth of knowledge.
Each resource takes the form of either a downloadable file or a web link.
How to use the Resource Library
You can browse through all our resources by clicking on any of the categories below. Another way of finding resources that would be useful to you is to search using the box on the right for popular or common terms - for example "course rep", "curriculum" or the name of an institution.
How to contribute to the Resource Library
We keenly welcome ongoing submissions to the Resource Library of effective practice from throughout the sector - and indeed from throughout the world. Whether it's a clear and concise course rep job description, a well-designed module evaluation form that renders you really meaningful ideas from students, a representative training programme, a research project, or case study on major institutional change, we'd love to add it.
So if you have a resource you would like to submit, please download this form and return it to us. We will then upload your resource and, if needed, get back to you to discuss it.
Finally, we aim to continually develop and improve the Resource Library, and so your feedback is important. If you have any questions or comments about how it works, please contact us.
