Max 

Hi everyone, my name's Max (he/him), I’m an Accounting and Finance graduate having spent my three years as a student getting fully involved with University life here at LSBU. I began my LSBU journey back in September 2018. I'd moved to London from North Wales and was excited for the journey that lay ahead. I never expected that I could be President of our Students’ Union three years later. I’ve had a truly life changing experience here at LSBU and hope to spend my year as President helping to pass on the transformational experience that I’ve had, to as many of our students as possible.

I've been here for three years, and I feel that I've seen both the good and the bad side of LSBU. I've been fully involved with university life and understand first-hand the problems we all face as students. The last academic year has been really tough for so many of us and I want to work with university teams and departments to improve the parts of our experience that are lacking. So that as we emerge from this pandemic, we can create a far greater university than it ever was before.

How I got involved in the SU

I've held several roles throughout my time at university and have a great flavour of what is already underway and what could make things even better.

My experience at LSBU includes the following:

  • Student Ambassador
  • Residential Life Ambassador (McLaren House)
  • Business Solution Centre, Student Advisor
  • Accounting and Finance Course Rep
  • President of the Men's Football Team
  • University Student Governor
  • Chair of Union Council

These roles have given me a far greater insight into student life at LSBU. I've worked with various teams across the campus. I know what we're doing right and what can be improved. I want to use my experience so far to push for a more inclusive and more diverse university, a university that gives us all a life-changing experience and a university that allows us to reach our full potential. I've had a life-changing experience during my three years here and want to show you that even though times are tough now, together, we can get through this and achieve more.

    Developing Lecture Capture Policy

    Passed
    • VP Education

    What's the big idea?

    I lobbied for a lecture capture policy during the last academic year with your support, and WE GOT ONE NOW! Lecture capture policy will ensure that most academic deliveries are recorded (where possible) and uploaded in your VLE section. LC policy is an outstanding achievement for our students but ensuring its proper implementations is the biggest challenge. As your VP of Education, I will be working with the university colleague throughout the next academic year to ensure the university is investing in Panopto development for a better quality of lecture recording.

    How will it benefit students?

    How lecture capture enhances the student experience! *It’s ideal for distance learning students, part-time students and international students – really any student who can’t be physically present in a teaching room at a given time for any number of reasons. By providing the flexibility to watch the recorded lecture from any location, whenever they like, students have much more control over their learning. *All undergraduates and post-graduates with access to recorded lectures like to be able to revisit or catch up on lectures and to navigate easily to search for the content they need. This is particularly useful when they have to miss a session due to illness, timetable clashes and during intense revision periods. Being able to access recorded lectures seamlessly via their VLE makes it particularly convenient. *‘Increased student perception of support’ is another factor that universities highlighted through discussions with students and in surveys on student perceptions. The majority of students felt that classroom capture added value to courses. This is also applicable to students for whom English is an additional language, for example. *Viewing recorded material provides more opportunities for interaction during class time. Since students can preview course material or information-based tutorials in their own time, topics are illuminated during contact time by means of debates, interaction and more in-depth exploration of themes and better quality debates.
