Student engagement and wellbeing: Insights to the student experience, academic care and services at ANU

How well do you understand university students and the impact you can have on them?

Many academics don’t realise how much of a difference they can make on the experience of students at university, ultimately leading to impacts on their academic outcomes as well. This workshop is set to expand your understanding on the experience of ANU students with particular attention paid to key times in the lifecycle where you have the opportunity to make the biggest impact, retention factors and a focus on equity, diversity and inclusion. You’ll learn not just about the student experience but how you can make a difference within it.

The event is finished.
