Monday 9th June 12pm-4pm, A48 Sir Clive Granger Building, University Park


The University of Nottingham and the Students’ Union are committed to working together to enhance teaching and collaborate on developing models of excellent practice for student engagement.

As part of the wider conversation surrounding student and staff engagement practices, we would like to invite you to the first education summit hosted jointly by the Students’ Union and the University.  The summit brings together students and staff to discuss ways for enhancing the quality of the learning experience at The University of Nottingham through the use of small breakout sessions.

  • Engagement and Identities: the role of student societies within schools
  • Communication: how can we improve the methods for students and staff communicating?
  • Student Engagement: How can students and staff work together on projects in partnership
