Where next for Student Engagement?

Yaz El Hakim


This opinion piece considers the national picture of student engagement as it has developed over the last six years and creates a prediction about the direction of travel and the likely shifts in student engagement within learning and partnerships in institutions. The development of the prediction from research, the evidence of technological disruption and the outputs of three nationally-funded research projects are outlined. The student engagement movement and deeper student engagement, partnership and leadership in improving learning experiences are predicted to develop dramatically.
