Student Voice Hub update: retiring forums, accounts & comments

As a Student Voice Hub user we want to give you a heads up about some changes we’re working on.

Since launching the Student Voice Hub in 2018, it has been a home for students and educators to find resources, share ideas and advice, and keep up to date with student voice and education. Most importantly, it has been a place for student voices to be shared and highlighted.

We’ve achieved lots with the Hub. Over the last eighteen months it has played an essential role in making government announcements around COVID-19 and education accessible to students. In January this year the Editorial Team was awarded a HEY grant to fund a series of pieces by LGBTIQ+ students living in rural and regional Victoria.

We’ve also learned a lot in the last three and a half years. Since becoming independent in 2020 we’ve been reflecting on feedback and working to better understand what makes the Hub unique and how to make it work better for students and educators. We’ll have more news about what our plans are soon but first we wanted to update you on the first steps we’re taking.

We are retiring the Student Voice Hub Discussion Forums. Instead we will be focusing on better ways for students to discuss important issues in education, including Zoom consultations and through our social media.

You no longer need an account to access content on the Student Voice Hub. All resources and posts are publicly available.

As such your account has been closed. Your personal data, including email address, will be deleted from our servers after the shutdown is complete. Your existing blog posts and comments will remain on our servers but they will be hidden and no longer be linked to you.

If you are a student and want to stay in touch join the VicSRC Student Community here. Otherwise sign up to receive our monthly VicSRC update.

You will no longer be able to make new comments on posts. All existing comments will be hidden.

Thank you for your support of the Student Voice Hub. We are looking forward to sharing everything we have been working on soon.

We also encourage you to follow VicSRC on social media to keep up to date.
