Advance HE Teaching & Learning Conference 2018: Beyond marketisation: Happiness resilience and community: Essential elements of the HE experience?

This presentation considers global student and parental perceptions and expectations of HE and the results of a ten-week project on happiness resilience and community within a UK HEI. Despite the challenge of consumerism is there still potential for UK universities to be transformative spaces that cultivate happiness and resilience; and that contribute to a sense of belonging and community?
