Lead Student Academic Representatives are involved in departmental planning throughout the year by taking an active role in processes such as the Annual Student Experience Review (ASER).
Involving a Student Academic Representative in the ASER planning process from the outset means that they can share their ideas and insights and help make sure the plan reflects the views and priorities of students in the department.
This also helps to equip the Reps with the knowledge and context of department plans to be able to undertake their role effectively and share any changes or updates with other students.
The ASER Development and Enhancement Plan is a live document to be referenced and updated throughout the year.
Students (usually the Lead Department Student Academic Representative) at postgraduate and undergraduate level are involved in the development of the plan, providing a brief narrative and co-signing the document.
The ASER plan should be a standing item on every Staff-Student Consultative Committee (SSCC) to help students to understand what actions are being taken and close the loop by demonstrating how this relates to the feedback students (either current or past) have given.
- For further guidance on ideas to close the loop see Closing the loop: informing students how their feedback has impacted UCL.
