FW: Retention and success seminar

 

Dear Colleagues,

I’d like to invite you to participate in a free, 60-minute webinar on Tuesday 2nd June at 12.30pm (BST) about student monitoring and information to enhance student retention and success.  For further details and to book a place please go to:  https://hobsons.webex.com/hobsons/onstage/g.php?d=641665593&t=a.

 

As you know, I have been researching student retention and success for some time now, and found student engagement in the curriculum and belonging to their academic programmes are crucial.  This involves a mainstream and inclusive approach, but it does need to be underpinned by data: in particular knowing which students are not engaging, using a range of engagement indicators.

 

Starfish tools provide institutions with a means to connect together different information and data sources, and to proactively follow-up and engage with students.  The webinar will talk about the issues and demonstrate the tools.  I have been learning and reviewing Starfish for about a year, and I think it offers a potentially useful solution to many UK and Irish institutions, and I thought you might find it interesting and useful in your continuing work to improve the student experience and student satisfaction and outcomes. 

 

With best wishes

Liz
