Strategies to Improve Student Recruitment, Engagement and Retention

Thursday 7 November • One Great George Street, London

Please accept an invitation to join President & CEO of Blackboard, Jay Bhatt, along with guest speakers for the autumn Blackboard Education Leadership Forum which will be held at One Great George Street in London from 10:00am until 4:30pm.

Universities and Colleges are dealing with rising student expectations, new models for delivering education as well as changes in funding. The use of educational technologies over the past decade has contributed to some of the positive changes and will continue to offer solutions for improving student recruitment, engagement and retention.

The Leadership Forum will focus on these key topics:
  • Increasing Student Recruitment – attracting applicants and improving conversion rates, and in particular international recruitment
  • Improving Student Engagement – strategies to embed  the use of technology to enhance teaching & learning and student engagement
  • Improving Student Satisfaction – with proven efficiencies in assessment and feedback
  • Improving Student Retention – through the use of learning analytics for timely performance evaluation at student, module and programme level
  • The Value and Future of MOOCs – realising real revenue    
The forum will bring together a select group of high-level members of the education community to discuss a number of key strategies around these topics and is open to any institution regardless of which learning management system they use. There will also be plenty of networking opportunities with leaders in educational innovation, and open discussion with experts in this field.
