The partnership ethos

The Partnership ethos

  • “Working with the student consultants was a real delight; they were professional and polite throughout. They also provided some really useful feedback in a very objective and non-judgmental way; nowhere near as scary as one might first imagine!”

  • “The opportunity to engage a student perspective is refreshing and challenging. I think this is valuable.”

  • “It was good to be able to speak in a relaxed and informal way about the delivery of the course.”


Developing perspectives

Developing perspectives

“I now know that there is the potential out there for learning to be so much more than it is now. Some lecturers get it but I think more can be done to change the learning experience. But I also realise that students still need to be willing or no changes will make a difference.” (Student consultant)


Developing perspectives1

Developing perspectives

“It has made me feel like the university cares about how the students feel about learning. I have found that lecturers are also receptive to feedback and are eager to alter the way they teach in order to improve students’ learning.” (Student consultant)

  • Turner posits that, if liminality is regarded as a time and place of withdrawal from normal modes of social action,


Concluding thoughts

Concluding thoughts

  • We’ve produced a model for SE at meso level;

  • Staff-student partnership, engagement and collaboration key features;

  • With limitations (scope, scale)

  • With potential too!
