Fostering Student Engagement – A self assessment tool
All the research about which students stay in an HE and complete their degrees and which ones leave shows that engagement with the experience (in a variety of ways) is a key determinant. The higher the level and breadth of engagement, the more likely a student is to remain. It follows therefore that staff teams should do everything they can to encourage students to engage with their peers, their staff, their subject / discipline and with the wider university community. You can use this proforma to assess what you do as a team to maximise student engagement.
