National Students as Partners Roundtable

Event Details
The University of Queensland, St. Lucia campus
2 October 2018 9:00 am

Students as Partners creates space for students and staff (academic or professional) to work together on teaching, learning, curriculum, and governance. As a way of thinking, Students as Partners shifts the educational paradigm of learning and teaching as something staff do to students to education as a shared endeavour done with students. Increasingly adopted around the globe, Students as Partners has led to the transformation of practices and an array of positive outcomes for both students and staff.

The annual National Students as Partners Roundtable brings together students, academics, and professional staff from across Australia and New Zealand to explore this innovative educational model along with international experts. Overseas colleagues are welcome to attend.

This event will be an opportunity to:

  • Share Students as Partners practices, ideas, and experiences
  • Discover new ways of considering Students as Partners in higher education
  • Network with a diversity of Students as Partners practitioners
  • Harness the creativity of staff and students to address teaching and learning challenges.

  • Catherine Bovill, Senior Lecturer, University of Edinburgh
  • Kelly Matthews, Associate Professor, University of Queensland
  • Eimear Enright, Lecturer, University of Queensland
  • Stuart Russell, Honours student, University of Queensland
  • Catherine Sherwood, PhD student and tutor, University of Queensland
