Programme: Atlas 2019-20
Course: Teaching Café - Student engagement: concepts, change and community


Student engagement is an umbrella term that can have different individual and contextual meanings. It has been used to describe a wide range of ways students are involved in higher education: from attendance right through to partnership, from student voice through to student activism. In the first part of this workshop we’ll explore some of the different ways student engagement can be understood, sharing our own understandings alongside concepts and models from scholarship, and consider how a values-based definition might help us find common ground. 


We’ll hear from a student engagement initiative at LSE and explore how localised student engagement practices might contribute to an institutional ethos or ecosystem of engagement. 


In the second part of the workshop we’ll explore the relationship between student engagement and community, and what this means for student (and staff) agency. Although there will be links to existing scholarship and practice around student engagement and partnership, the main focus of the session will be to provide you with space to work through these ideas together. Please come prepared to draw and write, to listen and share, and build on our collective wisdom to develop new student engagement ideas and practice for LSE. 



Dr Abbi Flint is an independent research and educational developer with a long-standing research and practice interest in student engagement, staff-student partnership and creative academic writing. She is a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy
