Making St Andrews a place to belong A workshop with Dr Greg Walton (Stanford)

This is a joint event of the Enhancement Theme team and the Centre for Higher Education Research.

Greg Walton is known internationally for his large body of work on belonging and threats to belonging as important contributing factors in student success and experience on campus. The research is based on simple and effective interventions at the campus and classroom level that can change educational outcomes in systemic ways. We are delighted to have Greg visit with us now in person in St Andrews.

The day is divided into two main sections. In the morning session, Greg will set the scene with a short presentation. We will then have invited presentations from staff and students across campus already working on innovations and interventions around the theme of belonging, to stimulate conversation. This session will allow for network building across campus, and for Greg to provide feedback and suggestions for further development of these initiatives. The morning will therefore be largely focused on initiatives at the campus-wide level.

See also the afternoon session, which will focus on how to build belonging on a local level in individual lectures and classrooms.
