Session Outline

We believe that Student Engagement is key to student retention and success in Higher Education. Whilst engaging in educationally purposeful activities is not essential to academic success (Kuh et al 2006), in-class involvement has been shown to be critical to the students’ experience of success (Tinto, 2012). Within the SIG we take a broad definition of student engagement, embracing engagement with programme, their studies and personal academic tutoring. This second meeting of the Student Engagement SIG is planned to be a best practice sharing opportunity with a view to developing a Tool Kit of collated examples and resources that can help support and increase student engagement with personal tutoring/academic advising.
