About this book

This book explores student-staff partnerships through a breadth of co-authored research projects. There is a significant gap in current literature regarding student-staff partnerships, both in the sharing of examples as well as in the examination of partnership working and its impact. Organised into four thematic sections, the editors and contributors highlight the diversity of routes students and staff can take to work in partnership, as well as how research, learning and teaching can be co-created. Written by both university staff and student researchers, the chapters consider the benefits of student-staff partnerships as an antidote to consumerist visions of higher education, and a way of celebrating the potential of students and their voices. This book will be of interest and value to scholars of student-staff partnerships.

Reviews

​“This book explores an innovative model of partnership between students, staff and academic developers in undertaking research into higher education practices and policies across an institution. By presenting a transformative vision of partnership in learning, teaching and research, which has the potential to change institutional culture, it addresses one of the most important issues facing higher education in the 21st century. I recommend it for readers in universities  internationally.” —Mick Healey, Higher Education Consultant and Researcher, UK
“Born from a small group within a single institution, this book exemplifies how student-staff partnership in higher education can grow to permeate individual, institutional, disciplinary, and theoretical boundaries. Readers will find pages filled with practical examples, research findings, and thought-provoking ideas which zoom from the individual partnership relationship to the landscape of partnership across the sector. Whether new to the field or looking for developmental inspiration, there’s something for everyone within this delightful anthology.”—Lucy Mercer-Mapstone, University of Technology Sydney, Australia
“This book has international relevance. It demonstrates the benefits of student-staff partnerships in capturing the diverse voices of both students and staff. The resulting text provides the reader with a multitude of examples of how to carry out partnership, and also allows for a deeper exploration of the theories behind the practice.” —Sam L. Dvorakova, PhD student, University of Edinburgh, UK
