Enhancing Teaching and Learning Through Learning Partnerships
A HUBS workshop on engaging students as partners in teaching and learning.
When? Thursday 26 March 2020, 10:00 to 16:00
Where? School of Agriculture, Policy and Development, The University of Reading RG6 7BE
This workshop event from the Heads of University Biosciences (HUBS) and the Royal Society of Biology focuses on engaging students as partners in teaching and learning.
Engaging students as partners in T&L continues to attract growing attention and critical debate, including in relation to enhancing the learning process itself and empowering students as T&L change agents. Student partnership can include collaborative projects, curriculum co-design and student voice initiatives. Partnership can also extend beyond teachers and students to include other stakeholders e.g. those involved in T&L support in institutions, and employers involved in authentic work-integrated learning projects. This event will explore pedagogies associated with learning partnerships in HE from different perspectives. By the end participants will have a better understanding of how partnerships function and the challenges and benefits of partnerships within biosciences education.
