Enhancing student success through student-staff partnership – Prof. Mick Healey (keynote)

Ways of engaging students in higher education as partners in learning and teaching is arguably one of the most important issues facing higher education in the 21st Century. In the uncertain environment associated with COVID-19 student-staff partnerships are even more important as a means of enhancing student success. We will unpack what is meant by students as partners and examine 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.

The themes will be illustrated with mini case studies from different parts of the world in both face-to-face and online contexts. We will also discuss the values which should underpin student-staff partnerships and explore how these can be applied in a pandemic world. Participants will be asked to share their stories and approaches to student-staff partnerships at Charles Sturt.
