Our Vice Principal, Education and Research, Dr. Michele Russell-Westhead gave a lecture on Thursday 2nd of July on Student Affairs at Pearson College London as part of the Pearson Higher Education Global Delivery seminar series.
The purpose was to further develop our academic community by engaging with other Higher Education Institutions (HEI) and share best practice across Pearson HE delivery. Dr. Russell-Westhead focused on industry engagement as a way of enhancing our student experience across academic and student services. Our Strategic Partnerships team provided relevant case studies for the event.
There was excellent feedback from the session and several academics from global universities have expressed interest in joining our academic community more fully and looking at joint projects with us and our students. They were particularly interested in the way in which we involve both industry and students in the design, delivery, assessment and evaluation of our programmes and input into wider Pearson College London life.
