When: Tuesday 24th May 12:30-13:30 UK Time (60 minutes)

About this conversation:

Higher Education places a great deal of emphasis on the outcomes of student surveys and other metrics associated with student ‘success’. This webinar is an opportunity to discuss metrics, particularly the outputs of the National Student Survey, and the challenge of interpreting them with appropriate context.

About Mark:

Prof Mark Langan (Chair in Higher Education; Associate Dean for Learning Teaching and Quality) is known for creative teaching designs and research into student surveys and other quantitative educational areas such as benchmarking. He has a research background in animal behaviour and evolution, but has focused on HE research for the past decade. Currently he is exploring data from the first ten years of the UK’s National Student Survey, researching student engagement and identifying predictors of student success. He is former editor of journal Bioscience Education, a National Teaching Fellow and Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
