Image of AnneMarie Deeb, Education Officer 2021/22    About me. Hi! I am AnneMarie and I’m your  Education Officer for 2021/22. Course:  MSc Forensic Science and Criminal  Justice and MSc Criminology. Hometown: Syracuse, New York. How do you think your friends and family would describe you? I would like to think they would describe me as bubbly and adventurous with a big heart.    What inspired you to become an Executive Officer? I first came to the university as a study abroad student and fell in love with the uni, my course, the city, and the people. As a master's student I found my course exciting and rewarding. Then the pandemic took away so much from the student experience.  I want to help return students to a smooth and enjoyable academic experience while continuing to reward them for their accomplishments.

 

What is the most important change you want to make this year? I care about the students at this university, and I want to be a strong voice for them. I am here to represent students and make sure they are heard, rewarded, and supported. Personally, I believe I am easy to talk to and believe that no idea or problem is  too small.   You can contact me at: su-education@le.ac.uk.    What is the most important change you want to make this year? I have two initiatives that coincide, and I want to begin working on them right away. My "Blended Learning Standard" will address how to combine on campus and virtual learning so that all students can be comfortable and successful. My second goal is revamping and continuing the Academic Safety Net Policy. The pandemic has taken a mental and physical toll on so many of us that there is a need for compassion, especially in education.    Hobbies and Interests: When I am not working you can find me traveling, playing volleyball, or exploring Leicester.  Favorite book: I just finished a great summer beach read: Dear Emmie Blue.   Favorite Song: Turn the Page by Bob Seger, an oldie but a goodie. Maybe a little Justin Bieber...   Series: Money Heist, WandaVision, and secretly a bit of Love Island.

 

 

 

Priority 1 - Reintroduction of safety net

• PVC Education is already committing to uncapped resits and am lobbying him for a reintroduction of sorts given the challenges of the new environment.

 

Priority 2 - Ignite Accessibility

• More student voice input through forums, Q&As and response units.

• Tracking of Personal Tutor engagement.

• Expanding Laptop Loan scheme in the library.

• Sit on ignite oversight group which meets fortnightly and overlooks all strands that implement ignite, can feed in to change here

• Pushing for more accessible and clear comms around ignite
