Student engagement

Student engagement is about the active participation of students in both their learning and their wider life at our University.

Effective engagement is especially important for active forms of learning, such as Team-Based Learning, which rely on students taking responsibility for their learning rather than being passive recipients of knowledge. 

Our project on student engagement forms part of an initiative to improve student retention and achievement, which also includes the Student Engagement Dashboard.
We are working with our Students' Union and Student Services to develop a framework for student engagement and partnership. This framework will set out a vision for a learning community at Anglia Ruskin in which students and staff are active and equal participants. It builds on other institutional developments such as student involvement in ‘Making our Mark’, our project on assessment and feedback that led to the Assessment Protocol.

The framework is founded on seven principles, covering partnership processes, institutional support and recognition, and outcomes and impact. It sits alongside the interim student engagement strategy developed by Student Services.
