Education Priorities

Student Voice, along with the VP:Education and Exec team have compiled a range of research  to outline our 10 priorities for the year ahead. We are hoping to work in partnership with the University on these over the coming year and will update you regularly on progress.

 

 

  • 1.A Student Engagment Code of Practice should be developed and implemented.
  • 2.Students should be provided with more contact time, especially small group contact time.
  • 3.Lecturers should have minimum office hours and this should be published via Learn.
  • 4.Mandatory training and support should be provided for lecturers who are identified as having difficulty with communications skills.
  • 5.Feedback should be received within 3 term time weeks of  submission deadline. Marked exam scripts should also be returned to students as standard.
  • 6.There should be an institution wide commitment to implementing technology enhanced learning in all Departments.
  • 7.Students should be provided with all resources they need to complete their course. There should be sufficient access to specialist software and hidden costs should be eliminated.
  • 8.Students should be involved in the recruitment process for new lecturers.
  • 9.The Union and University should jointly investigate peer assisted learning as a way of supporting students.
  • 10.We should launch a new Student Led Teaching awards, culminating in a high profile awards night to celebrate teaching excellence at loughborough.
