Event description

Description

The Fellowship builds on the momentum developed during the OLT Strategic Commissioned Priority Project: ‘Student Engagement in university decision making and governance” (2014-2016). The project asked the questions: What is ‘student engagement’ leading to ‘student partnership’ in institution decision-making? Why is student partnership valuable to institutions, their students and to the sector as a whole? How may student engagement processes be embedded effectively to lead to an ethos or culture of student partnership? The project report is available on the Fellowship website: www.studentvoice.uts.edu.au.

International research showed how student partnership is becoming firmly embedded in higher education sectors elsewhere and evidence shows clear benefits for both institutions and their students. Authentic and effective engagement of student voice is recognised as enhancing the quality of teaching and learning and the educational experience of students, while facilitating their personal development in terms of critical thinking, leadership and citizenship. Partnership with students in faculty and university wide decision making, from course and subject representation to matters of strategy and direction, has a strong role to play in developing the skills required for the rapidly changing work environment.

In this presentation Sally will discuss the collaboration, the principles and the framework and the proposed way forward to sustainable student partnership
