Supporting the Student Engagement Conference from Advance HE

evasys is delighted to support the upcoming Student Engagement Conference from Advance HE, taking place on Thursday 20th April 2023 at Manchester Metropolitan University.

AdvanceHE Student Engagement Conference 20 April 2023
  • Date: 20 April 2023

  • Location: Manchester Metropolitan University

  • Who: DVCs, PVCs and equivalent senior leaders

Focusing on the theme ‘What does student engagement mean to you?’, this conference will cover good practice in engaging students, the student voice and student participation in the governance and decision making processes with Higher Education.

How does the meaning of student engagement vary?

Depending on who you are – a student, a lecturer or a senior leader – the meaning of student engagement varies from each perspective.  How can student engagement be measured and how can the understanding of student engagement from the varying perspectives be merged to achieve excellent student outcomes for all?

This conference will build on the events run in 2021 and 2022 to delve further into what can be learned from the data, from students, from staff, from other countries and from different types of institution. The event is returning to an in-person conference, allowing for more networking and informal interactions that will work with the conference elements to build a better understanding of student engagement.

Conor Murray-Gauld and Dr Helena Lim of evasys will be on-hand throughout the event to provide an additional perspective on student engagement gleaned from their joint experiences of working within institutions and for evasys – the UK’s leading provider of course and module evaluation solutions to higher education.

How does using evasys impact student engagement?

Improvement to student engagement is one of the key benefits of using evasys as your institutional survey platform.

At the event Helena and Conor will be joining forces with Poppy Lindsey, Welfare Officer at Reading University Students’ Union, to run a workshop titled ‘Turn up the Volume: Driving Student Engagement through Student Voice’. Workshop 5 is taking place at 2.00 pm on the day will be an interactive, collaborative session exploring different approaches for ‘turning up the volume’ on student voice and driving student engagement in learning, building belonging and contributing to positive learning environments.

A primary tool for capturing the student voice, evasys enables the gathering of both quantitative and qualitative data and, importantly, a Closing the Loop feature that enables an institution to report back to students that their feedback has been heard and how it has been acted upon.
