Hi! My name is John and I am the President of Education here at SAUWS for this coming academic year. I am in my second year as a sabbatical officer, in what is a new role for the Students' Association. I remain a cross-campus officer, working across all five of our domestic campuses as well as representing students at our college and transnational education partners. This year my remit is based solely around education and the learning experience of students at UWS. Part of that remit is to oversee the class rep system, represent our students at university academic committees ensuring that the student voice is heard loud and clear and to work with our student representatives to empower them to enhance and improve their learning experience and quality of teaching.
My objectives for this year are:
- Representation Restructure
To look at how students are represented across the university from class reps to programme reps and school boards to student fellows.
- Assessment Method Review
To review the assessment methods in modules being undertaken at UWS and to work towards the introduction of more varied assessment methods.
- Library Services
This is an area that will be developing over the coming months and years with the new student hub project being rolled out in September 2016 in Paisley and then on to the other campuses as well as the coming renovations to Paisley library, it is important that these student areas are modern and contemporary with a wide range of spaces and technology.
