Event Report – December 2022

The first in-person National Student Engagement Network since 2019 was held at Maynooth University’s impressive Library building. Thank you to the teams at Maynooth Teaching and Learning and Maynooth Students’ Union (MSU) for their support in organising and hosting this exciting opportunity to bring students and staff from across the Irish higher education sector together again. It was a lively day of debate and discussion that NStEP hopes to build on.

The event explored a number of themes, including student engagement in quality assurance and enhancement activities, supporting students in governance and decision-making, student partnership in student services, SaPiA (student partnership in assessment), resources for supporting students’ union officers, and student success strategies. Importantly, the Network offered staff and student representatives a chance to consider how these issues and ideas can be addressed in their own institutions, as well as shaped at the national level.

If you weren’t able to join us in December, you can find the speakers’ presentations on our Resources Hub, as well as our Event Report which includes contributor and attendee perspectives on the event.
