Student engagement and student involvement are terms that are sometimes used synonymously, however there are distinctions that may be useful to make. Student engagement generally focuses on in-depth engagement with their learning and assessment through active, participatory methods that trigger deep learning in order for the learning to be applied in practice and life. Opportunities for enabling and promoting student engagement in learning need to be built in across the HE provision.
Involving students in curriculum planning, delivery and assessment enables increased alignment of provision and need as well as contributing to their employability profiles. The student representative role is also important here and how that is carried out to best effect.
