The team recently contributed to the Jisc Change Agents’ Network (CAN) Staff & Student Meet Up, hosted by the University of Lincoln, 2 June 2016. CAN is a rapidly growing national network of student and staff practitioners in student engagement. This one-day event provided a chance to share practice, research, experiences and new thinking on student engagement, with a particular focus on engaging students as partners.
We took part in the practice showcase, presenting our latest project that sought to engage students in designing the Academic Book of the Future. This networking event enabled us to discuss the co_LAB workshop model and receive feedback of our student partnership projects from other educators. We were also accompanied by a student participant from the latest workshop to share her experiences and contribute a student perspective.
