20 January 2016 – Dan Derricott, Student Engagement Manager, at the University of Lincoln, presents a webinar called ‘Growing a whole institution culture of commitment to student engagement. ‘ As the student engagement agenda has gained momentum in UK higher and further education, there are numerous interesting and complex issues that arise and seemingly prevent a whole institutional commitment to working with students as partners. Issues such as departmental autonomy, traditional hierarchies and power dynamics, and lack of time invested in innovative student engagement all contribute to a landscape where engaging students remains a project rather than a culture, and something done in a few departments rather than across a whole institution.
