    Engaging Students as Partners and as Change Agents, Professor Mick Healey

    This workshop will explore four ways in which students may be engaged as partners through: a) Learning, teaching and assessment; b) Subject-based research and inquiry; c) Scholarship of teaching and learning; and d) Curriculum design and pedagogic advice and consultancy. Particular attention will be paid to how we may build on and move beyond listening to the student voice and involve students as change agents who can have an impact on the teaching and learning that they and their fellow students experience, through mentoring staff, co-researching teaching and learning, and co-designing the curriculum.
