Our speakers come from a range of different universities across the UK and will be tackling key aspects of the student experience, including wellbeing, skills, inclusion, culture and strategy.
Case Study 1 | Ensuring good student wellbeing is an essential factor in providing an excellent student experience at university. In this presentation, Drew Linforth from the University of Birmingham explores how his team improved student wellbeing through community development, connecting with third sector organisations, social marketing and intersectional understandings of wellbeing.
Case Study 2 | A first class degree is no longer the only thing students look for from a university. In this case study, Dr Pathik Pathak from the University of Southampton explores how his university has utilised co-curricula offerings to help students develop a stronger portfolio of transferable skills, think more deeply about their career aspirations and feel a greater sense of purpose during their studies.
Case Study 3 | Accessibility should be a top priority for universities in order to offer a truly personalised experience. In this session, Kevin Merry from De Montfort University presents his work on universal design for learning and the importance of keeping SEND in mind throughout learning design.
