ARISE Lecture: Taking a Critical Look at Partnership as the Way Forward to Enhancing Student Engagement

>>  Reserve your place now through Eventbrite

The policy of working in partnership with students has much to offer, and associated practices can be valuable. As an ethos it positions staff and students as co-learners and seeks to build a mutual educational community with shared ethical values. This does much to counter neo-liberal models and influences in higher education. However, it is problematic to extend partnership to all students and staff, to be inclusive and enable all to share the indubitable benefits. By sharing candid evidence about partnership in practice we may consider how to navigate risks, barriers and pitfalls.
