Advancing Student Engagement in Higher Education: Reflection, Critique and Challenge

Tom Lowe (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Providing a selection of critical pieces on the key challenges and debates in student engagement in higher education, this edited collection of sector-leading, scholarly-informed critical reflections is designed to consider and build upon what can be done to advance student engagement.

By problematising student engagement practice, this book explores how to strengthen policies, recognise the issues, and create solutions to overcome barriers and tensions. It considers topics such as diversity, accessibility, representativeness, evidencing impact, data analytics, the campus estate, and the impact of COVID-19. The contributors provide lessons learned and knowledge from the field to make practice with students more considered and robust for the challenges ahead in the post-pandemic University.

Moving beyond endorsing student engagement and offering best practice to critically reflect and challenge on our engagements with students in contemporary higher education, this book is ideal reading for all those developing education, course leaders and heads of academic departments, as well as anyone interested in advancing student engagement in their higher education setting.
