Jannatul Ferdous 

Hiya! I am Jannatul Ferdous(she/her), and I am your VP Welfare and Equality for the 2021/2022 academic year. 

I have spent three years at London South Bank University - 2 years as an LLB Hons(LAW) student and representing you last year as a Sabbatical officer at the Students’ Union. This year I will work with a fantastic officer team –Max (Union President), Rabbi (VP Education) & Joel (VP Activities). We are all committed to making sure your time at university is memorable, comfortable, and the most impactful for your career.

Along with the 21/22 officer team, I want to make sure that every student at LSBU is proud of their Students’ Union.

How I got involved in the SU

I arrived at LSBU back in 2018 as a Law Student from Bangladesh. Joining the Law society was my first interaction with the SU. During the 2019 Refreshers Fair, I got to see how the SU worked more closely. In the same year, I started working with SU as one of the Student Trustee. From that moment, I feel like my actual journey with the Students’ Union began, and my university journey became better and better. During the last academic year, I became more aware of problems students' were facing - and areas of the university that could improve, which is how I made up my mind to run for Vice President Welfare and Equality again in the 20/21 academic year. Towards the end of my first term, I felt there was so much more I wanted to achieve for the students at LSBU, which is why I decided to re-run. 

Thank you all for electing and putting your trust in me for the 21/22 academic year.

    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.
