Our webinars provide bitesize learning opportunities throughout the year on key topics that are important to your union. Here are the webinars coming up this week!

Tuesday 8th December; 11.30am

Lead & Change Student Opportunities

Only a few months ago we were in Lancaster, doing night-time orienteering, performing our best karaoke, making friends, and doing some workshops and tutor sessions. This webinar is an opportunity for the Student Opportunities group to get back together, and share our successes and headaches so far. Rosie Soffe (lead tutor) will be joined by 1 or 2 of the tutors and (hopefully!) lots of you for this interactive webinar.

If you have any questions or success stories that you’d like discussed, email them to Rosie 1 week before the webinar. See you there #neilandchange

Effective support for independent learning

In this session we will be looking at the findings from a piece of research that The Student Engagement Partnership, NUS and Prof. Liz Thomas Associates delivered in partnership in the first half of 2015. The project worked with over 100 students from a number of different UK Higher Education Institutions finding how to best support students to learn independently.

We’ll be recording each webinar and adding them to our 'past webinars' page. You’ll be able to access these as soon as possible after the webinars and catch up with anything you might have missed.
