The pre-Congress workshop explored the use of technology to transform the student experience both in terms of the student’s overall learning journey and the campus as a destination.

 The Journey
Participants were trained in Student Experience Journey Mapping (SXJM). Customer Experience Journey Mapping (CXJM) is used in many sectors. SXJM is easy to learn and can be adapted to any area of University life. We gained insight into how your students perceive their interactions with us that shows where our interventions can really make a difference to outcomes. It can be used with non-technical colleagues and will help to decide which projects are worth pursuing.
The Destination
We also took a look at the university campus as a destination and what we need to do to meet the needs of 21st century learning and teaching. This was an opportunity to hear about experiences worldwide as well as what is happening in Europe.
We had an award-winning design expert from Australia who took us through a hands-on session in solving real world problems to improve the student experience in a typical campus space.

  • EUNIS Pre-Congress workshop: European Student Card Conference 2017, 6th of June 2017, Münster, Germany
We were discovering the vision, potential and practical implementation of a European student identity card at an international conference in the framework of the EU project “European Student Card” (ESC). The pre-conference workshop presented the current state in the technical development of a European student ID card that could give access to services as diverse as library use, student restaurants, copy machines, or local transportation – one card for different services and all this with cross-border functionality. Additionally to the comprehensive presentation of the idea of a European Student Card, the workshop focused on the opportunities in Student Services, and looked at the challenges which might come along with its implementation. An overview about the current state of development, the progress of the EU-project was given along with the possibility to see the first prototype of a European Student Card. A practical part of the workshop allowed for the verification of technical requirements.

This pre-conference workshop was aimed at IT specialist and leaders in higher education who were interested in the digital future of student cards, and is particularly useful for directors of IT services or student services in European institutions of higher education.
