Student Engagement: Pedagogy or Politics?


A joint event by the HEA and the Researching, Advancing and Inspiring Student Engagement (RAISE) network


Student engagement is currently high on the agenda, but there is a fundamental lack of clarity about the purpose/s of developing students’ involvement in their education. This symposium will focus explicitly on what the motivations for and benefits of student engagement are proposed to be. This highly interactive day will involve the presentation and discussion of a range of different viewpoints. The purpose of the day is to bring together a broad constituency to debate and work together on the issues arising.


Date: 20th Mar 2013

Location/venue: 23 Banbury Road, Keble College, Oxford

Cost: FREE (places allocated on first come first served basis)
