StARs honoured at awards ceremony
21 June 2013
UCLU held its annual awards ceremony for Student Academic Representatives (StARs) on Friday 31 May 2013.
This year over 170 StARs were awarded a certificate, indicating that they have participated in training, attended at least two Student Staff Consultative Committee (SSCC) meetings in their capacity as a representative and submitted reflective statements on their experience.
The annual ceremony celebrates the achievements of StARs from across all UCL Faculties. For example, Donghan Chen, a StAR in the Department of Computer Science, says, “Student representatives play an important role in reporting feedback to the lecturers — this can be more efficient than module surveys. At the beginning of the term, I submitted a list of student suggestions to the programme director. The impact was very impressive. The lecturers started to prepare resources and Moodle is used by lecturers more frequently.”
Dr Ruth Siddall, UCL Dean of Students (Welfare) [pictured above], co-presented the awards and noted the exceptional expansion of the representation scheme: this year UCLU have trained 400 StARs.
Edwin Clifford-Coupe, the UCLU Education and Campaigns Officer, emphasised the importance of student representation at course level. “It’s essential we have the Union’s eyes and ears on the ground and in our departments raising issues, campaigning and making change. It is important that UCL students have a voice at all levels,” he said.
