Conceptualising Student Engagement in Order to Improve Policy and Practice

Published: 12 July 2011
Student Engagement

Tuesday 12th July 2011 from 1.30- 4.00pm Hartley Library CELT room (Level 5), Highfield Campus. The term, student engagement, is frequently used without any conceptual basis – teaching in a certain way will make students more engaged. Therefore we need to map student engagement conceptually and to articulate the key principles that underpin it. This session will provide an insight into the multidimensionality of engagement but also ways forward in developing policies and practices to foster engagement.

The session will be led by Colin Bryson from Newcastle University and will offer a presentation and discussion time as well as opportunities to make contacts and discuss the issues involved more informally.

Please let Dr Brenda Johnston know if you plan to attend to help with ordering refreshments etc.

This is the first of a series of seminars on student engagement entitled
“(Re-)conceptualising Student Engagement” that will be presented by RAISE (Researching, Advancing, Inspiring Student Engagement) and hosted by the Higher Education Research Group . For further details about the proposed seminar series or about RAISE please contact Dr Julie Wintrup Academic Lead Education in the Faculty of Health Sciences.
