We all know that student recruitment is a top priority for all universities, and the University of Worcester is no different. Nationally we face many challenges, with an historic low in the number of 18 year olds to draw our numbers from, and doubts over Brexit potentially having a negative effect on the number of international students studying in the UK.
The flip side of this story is student retention, which is every bit as important as recruitment. How can we keep students engaged and make sure that they aren’t struggling with life at university?
Student engagement and progression is key to their success, and the retention centre and performance dashboard are tools in Blackboard which can help you monitor your students’ activity within your Blackboard. Our handy 90-minute workshop will look at setting up rules for reporting lack of engagement and/or achievement and discuss strategies for re-engaging students and promoting active learning.
