Following a month of extensive research and engagement with students, we've published this report into the third term digital experience of students.
Throughout this last month, we have been working extremely hard to compare Harper Adams efforts with the sector, to discuss what challenges you are all facing, and to collaboratively develop solutions to these challenges. This report is the amalgamation of all of this work, and it sets clear recommendations we are lobbying for the next academic year.
CONTINUING THIS WORK
Last week, we presented this report and its findings to senior managers in the University, and members of the Learning and Teaching Student Experience Committee at the University. We are dedicated to ensuring that this report is continuously monitored so that we can hold the University to account in implementing the recommendations. So that we 'your SU' are ensuring that every effort possible is being made to enable you, to receive the best possible academic experience next year. Our Incoming President (Thomas Oatey) and Incoming Vice President (Lauren France), are committed to working alongside the University to ensure that your voice is raised, listened to, and actioned. We are grateful that the University has received our first formal student voice report with open arms, and we look forward to seeing these recommendations implemented as soon as possible.
Director of Learning, Teaching and International, Andrew Jones, “We are delighted that our Students’ Union has also carried out such a large survey of all students regarding their online and digital experiences during the lockdown and this has led to a comprehensive report with detailed feedback and recommendations for our approach. This report from the Students’ Union is highly significant as their first formal ‘Student Voice’ report and has been discussed by the Senior Management team, Learning, Teaching and Student Experience Committee and will be shared with all staff. We look forward to working with the Students' Union in discussing their recommendation and implementing these across the summer"
As this report now moves into the implementation phase, we’ll keep you posted on the next steps and timeframes.
