We have a strong culture of student engagement at the University of Lincoln and are renowned for student engagement innovation within the HE sector.
The University of Lincoln was the first to introduce a specific, institution-wide Student Engagement Strategy placing the Student as Producer philosophy at its core. This approach, whereby students are not merely the recipients of ‘received wisdom’ but are rather the creators and co-creators of new knowledge, has been embedded as an underlining principle within our teaching and learning, and has put Lincoln on the map for research-engaged teaching.
Student engagement at the University of Lincoln includes a vast array of practices and projects that academics and professional service staff support and lead on locally within schools and departments. This work all contributes to the key aim of ensuring our students are valued as members of the academic community.
A key element of student engagement activity at the University of Lincoln is the Student Engagement Champion Network. All Schools and service departments have a Student Engagement Champion, who works closely with student representatives and colleagues in their School/Department. Their role is to promote, encourage, enable and support student participation in their school.
The central LALT Student Engagement Team supports and promotes sharing of good practice and helps to promote a shared understanding of student engagement within the university. We introduce all new members of staff to student engagement practices and support at the university as part of the Lincoln Welcome induction workshop.
We aim to grow and develop student engagement at the University of Lincoln further, continuing to build on current activities and develop new areas for student engagement.
