Register for the next CAN webinar on 20 January 2016, which runs from 12:30-1:30, here: https://www.eventsforce.net/jisc/524/home Dan Derricott from the University of Lincoln will present the session, ‘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.
Dan (@danderricott), will outline the university’s bold new strategic plan that aims to reinforce and move forward its commitment to working with students as partners in and producers of their university.
In particular, Dan will explore how the university will rethink how institutional systems and structures (found in most UK HEIs) can be rethought to reinforce and underpin a culture of engaging students so that the whole institution develops and evolves together.
