Student engagement and collaboration

Our approach to teaching is informed by evidence that the modern student is likely to learn best when face-to-face experience is combined with sophisticated and interactive digital resources. In a world of amazing technological change, our challenge is understanding how the digital and physical campus experience can work to engage bright, curious minds in the process of learning.

The student experience is our highest priority at Macquarie. The student journey is serviced from early engagement to recruitment, throughout learning, and into graduation, and beyond.

Academic and extra-curricular programming (and administration) is aligned through partnerships across portfolios and faculties to enable the best possible outcomes for students.

See the Strategic framework and Teaching at Macquarie for more initiative details.

To ensure currency, we regularly engage in benchmarking including analysis of commissioned student research projects to inform strategic priorities and directions that respond to the increasing diversity of prospecting learners, and the fast-paced global context of higher education provisioning. At all times, we seek student engagement and participation to validate and collaborate in rolling-out tailored solutions.
