Topic: Student Online Engagement: Examples of good practice from the UK’s Open University
A 4-day visit to the UK’s Open University in October 2019 provided the opportunity for Pat Gillett to examine, first-hand, the institution’s approach to ‘student engagement’. Discussions were held with a range of personnel involved in the OU’s ‘100% online’ Master of Business Administration (MBA) course. This included the Program Director, Lecturers and Instructional Designers. Insights gained from the visit are being used to help shape a ‘student engagement strategy’ for SCU’s Online MBA.
Pat Gillett was awarded “Best Presentation” at the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Symposium in 2019.
