In May 2013 LSU held its 2nd Education Conference of the year. Entitled ‘Do students expect more’, the conference looked to highlight current developments whilst offering those in attendance a chance to discuss what they believe the future of education should look like.
The conference boasted two guest speakers, Gary Hughes NUS Higher Education Conference and Carol Robinson, the newly appointed Head of the Teaching Centre.
Gary Hughes talk focused on true partnership, pushing for more trust to be placed in students to shape their education. Carol Robinson took the time to highlight some of the work the teaching centre is doing as well as talking to attendees about some of her own work, including venturing into lecture capture and introducing us to the concept of the ‘upside down lecture’ where students watch a lecture on their own and then the timetables slot provides the chance for deeper discussion into the topics covered. This sound like an excellent idea and something we are hopeful may become common place in the near future.
Our very own VP: Education, Lazar Zindovic also spoke, highlighting the great work and vital position of Programme President’s, particularly applauding the ‘shift’ in departments such as PHIR from listening to students to engaging and executing ideas.
The conference concluded with an Open Space Technology session, offering students and Programme Reps the chance to put forward topics for discussion and then in informal groups delve deeper into the headline topic.

The Student Charter is a brand new document being released this year. The Students Union have been working hand in hand with the University to make sure that the student voice has been heard and considered at every stage of this document being put together.
This document tells you what you can expect to receive from the University and what you are expected to do in return. The hope is that this document will play a part in making your education one of the best on offer.
Each year the Union President will have a chance to discuss this document and agree to it on your behalf so if there is anything you don’t agree with, or things you think should be included on the Charter, let us know by emailing Lazar Zindovic VP: Education at email@example.com
