October’s Masterclass looked at maximising deep learning in students. The slides from the session can be found below.
Category: Student Experience
This masterclass covered a number of psychological constructs and theories that can be applied to staff-student interactions and teaching and learning in general. The over-arching aim of the session was to inspire us to always work with our students as individuals who bring their own unique set of characteristics, skills and experiences to the learning environment.
The off-campus students’ project was developed 3 years ago after it was identified that retention and achievement levels at university were being affected by whether students chose to live at home rather than move into student housing. This group also intersects strongly with mature students, student parents and student carers who are given their own focus within the project.
Enhancing the student experience is the priority for September’s programme. We will look into different aspects of supporting student learning, particularly in terms of thinking about the different challenges that students may face and the impact this may have on their experience at University.
