The new enhancement theme is Evidence for Enhancement: Improving the Student Experience, it was launched on 5 October 2017 and will run until 2020. Staff and students from all 19 Scottish higher education institutions attended the event in Glasgow, which explored how the theme will operate. Further details and analysis from the event are available on the Enhancement Theme site.
The University of Stirling have chosen to focus institutional activity in three key areas:
- investigating and developing the use of learning analytics
- creation of a new approach to Personal Development Planning and an e-portfolio to support this
- more effective use of evidence and data available for faculty and academic staff to improve student retention.
The University of Stirling institutional lead for the theme is Professor Alison Green and our student representative is Daniel Wright, VP Education at our Student Union.
