Podcast on ways of engaging students on and around campus now available

Date: August 4 - 2023

The latest episode of our Membership podcast series is now available via our website.

The discussion focuses on the outcomes of a Collaborative Enhancement Project that explored how patterns of student attendance and engagement are changing across post-pandemic UK higher education.

In this instalment, Dr Kerr Castle (Quality Enhancement and Standards Specialist at QAA) sits down with Dr George Hulene, Associate Dean of the Faculty of Business and Law, Coventry University; Professor Eleanor Davies, Associate Dean of Teaching and Learning, Huddersfield Business School; and Dr Peter Wolstencroft, Liverpool John Moores University.

Through the course of the episode, the panel discusses how student experiences and engagement with learning and teaching are evolving across post-pandemic UK higher education, with reflections on the recently published work of a QAA-funded Collaborative Enhancement Project led by Coventry University. The project involved working with 10 business schools to explore student priorities and produce a Student Engagement Framework following their exploration of how students have responded to the changes in delivery and assessment. Their findings identified key themes, including:

  • timetabling and commuting students
  • the need for virtual and physical communities
  • the importance of recordings to support flexible learning
  • digital literacy and inequalities
  • mobilising student voice.

These themes are picked up through the discussion in the podcast.

This podcast follows last month’s episode about the experience of disabled students.
