The National Student Engagement Network is back again! Each NStEP network event for staff and student reps provides a chance to consider some of the big topics in student engagement.

The National Student Engagement Network – supported by the NStEP partners in the HEA, QQI, and USI – brings together student representatives and staff from across roles and remits in our participating institutions. It provides a chance to share practice, discuss challenges, learn new student engagement ideas, and shape the direction of NStEP itself.

The next Network event takes place at Dublin City University‘s U-Building on the 9th May. You can find directions to DCU here on their website. Thank you to the teams at DCU and DCUSU for their support in organising this exciting opportunity to bring students and staff from across the Irish higher education sector together again.

Event details

Date: 9th May

Location: U-Building, DCU, Glasnevin Campus

Time: 10am-3pm

This event will focus on sharing some of the wonderful case studies found in our Student Engagement Case Study Hub, published in late 2022. We will hear from authors of some of the case studies on their initiatives or projects, how they have progressed since publication and where they hope to go next. As well as our Case Study Highlight, attendees will get a chance to feed into the work of NStEP on projects that are currently ongoing in the area.

Registration is now open on Eventbrite for student representatives and staff from our 25 participating institutions, listed here.

Registration is via Eventbrite and is for staff and students at participating institutions only. Spaces are limited. If you are uncertain about the status of your institution in NStEP’s network, please get in touch.

Those who may be interested in attending could include students, student reps, staff who teach and those who support teaching and learning, quality officers, senior management and leadership across HEI governance, staff in support services, and those who work on national policy. If you are an NStEP key contact for your institution, please share this information among your peers and colleagues who may be interested.
