SAGE Projects

One of the key functions of SAGE is to work in partnership with staff from LTQEN and SEF on short-life projects to enhance the student experience. There are already a number of student/staff collaborations underway, ranging from joint participation in one-off events to longer-term working groups. These include:

  • A standing communications group, responsible for coordinating any SAGE events and managing how SAGE is promoted across the University
  • A Student Experience Summit working group, responsible for organising and facilitating this year’s Annual Student Experience Summit
  • Student/staff working groups exploring the development of social media guidance and online submission, assessment and feedback at GCU
  • Student input into timetabling at GCU
  • A joint paper presented at the 15th Annual Durham Blackboard Users Conference on the 6-7 January 2015. Jim Emery (Lecturer in Blended Learning) and Stephanie Noble (PGT Student Representative) co-produced and presented a session entitled ‘Engaging Students at GCU: The Story So Far’

SAGE working groups are a valuable mechanism for students to work in partnership with staff to influence developments that impact on their learning experience.
