Event Details

Student wellbeing and engagement have been trending topics over recent years and the urgency to achieve ‘success’ in these areas has been amplified by the impact of the global pandemic. HE institutions are increasingly being held accountable in the duty of care they provide to enrolled students at all levels. Whilst students are ultimately the main agent in their wellbeing, HE institutions should provide development opportunities and scenarios to equip graduates with adaptability and resilience for the world of work.

Alongside this resilience and growth mindset, employers are looking for students that can apply their knowledge to ‘real world’ situations and demonstrate critical engagement. An underlying theme of this workshop is that students that can nurture their wellbeing and engage in meaningful educational experiences are likely better equipped for the next step in their career.

This interactive networking workshop explores innovative approaches around wellbeing and engagement and the intersection between these student experience components. We will reflect on how we can create purposeful learning journeys for business and management students.

The workshop, run over two days will:

  • Inspire participants to think about student wellbeing in new ways and develop their own offering in line with student experience goals
  • Introduce pioneering working practices in wellbeing which view this as a life skill rather than a tick box exercise around student mental health
  • Explore fresh approaches to engagement in parallel to supporting student wellbeing
  • Understand how to build meaningful initiatives that promote identification with the institution for both learners and graduates, and how this can contribute to a sense of belonging and community

Learning outcomes

The first day will focus on wellbeing, and the second on student engagement. There will be time for reflection, planning and feedback. Participants will be introduced to innovative approaches by experts in the field and will then have the opportunity to shape their own ideas around these through co-creation with peers. In the spirit of EFMD, you can expect to work with peers from different institutions and countries to gain insights from across the sector.

You will learn what others are doing and consider how you may adapt ideas for your institution and in terms of the student experience you are providing. You will be given time, tools and resources to organise your thoughts and learning around this and prompted to set goals and plan for action.

Target Group

This series is aimed at Programme Directors, Programme Managers, Learning Centres or any other faculty or professional services staff that have an interest in increasing student wellbeing and engagement. This may also include services around careers, student professional development and student experience.
