Managing the Student Experience – International and HKUST Practices

Tuesday, 9 June, 2009 (All day)

Presenter: Prof Joan Cooper

Format: Seminar

The total student experience encompasses teaching and learning, curriculum, student life, advising and mentoring. The term embraces the notion that learning does not only take place in the classroom and that students’ time spent in higher education is about a whole range of experiences.

In the last ten years there has been a global trend in Higher Education of moving from it being the domain of the elite to mass education. This has led to a student population that is diverse in background, in needs and in expectations. This interactive session explored how Universities define ‘the student experience’, how this translates to student engagement and sought to ask how this is defined and translated at HKUST.
