Staff - student partnerships guide

Practical guide: scaling up student-staff partnerships in higher education.

Student-staff partnerships are a focus within many higher education institutions internationally, as the value of student agency for enhancing learning and wider university cultures is increasingly recognised.

Although there are many student-staff partnership schemes in the UK and further afield, there is little evidence-based guidance available to those wishing to establish or sustain an institutional partnership scheme.

This practical guide has been co-authored by Dr Lucy Mercer-Mapstone, an Endeavour Research Fellow recently based in the IAD. The guide is designed to support individuals, teams, or institutions in scaling up student-staff partnership.
