The newly-formed Student-Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) for the MSc in Digital Education will have its first meeting on 16 March. Broadly speaking, the aim of this committee is to ensure that the student voice is heard on issues that affect their educational experience. Ours will be one of many SSLCs across the University, but we can ensure that it meets our own needs as a fully online programme. In the University’s guidelines, there is a useful set of principles highlighting governance, decision making, quality enhancement and assurance. We shall be formulating our own terms of reference, but they will be in keeping with these principles.
For the MSc in Digital Education, our SSLC membership consists of 8 student reps, 3 academic staff, and our administrator. To see who we are – and to raise any issues you want us to consider – go to our section in the MSc in Digital Education Moodle space. This space will be changing over the next few weeks as we add further information about ourselves and our aims. But you can contribute to the discussion forum now.
