News & Events

Welcome to the new members of the student network!

Courses are starting and students are returning to their campuses (or their digital classrooms) which means that the work of the ENLIGHT Student Network continues. Some representatives have left their positions and moved on. Our official hand-over meeting took place in August. We are looking forward to our exciting Student Board elections and working with all the new Student Network Representatives.

The Student Network has successfully sent in an application to participate in the Teaching and Learning Conference in Ghent looking at the lessons we have learned through digital learning and the lessons we will learn as we return to in person teaching. We are excited to engage with the diverse student groups that make up ENLIGHT over the coming year and are hopeful we will meet each other in person over this academic year.
