Students as Co-creators symposium 2025

Students as Co-creators Symposium

This symposium will provide an open and supportive environment within which to share and discuss contemporary practice and initiatives relating to teaching and learning.


This symposium will focus on working with students as co-creators of the student experience (cutting across curricula and co-curricula activities). What does true partnership with students look like and how can it enhance the student experience, improve outcomes and increase engagement? 

The symposium will allow colleagues to showcase the work they are doing in this area, and we strongly encourage student presenters and teams of academics, professional services, and students who can share good practice with colleagues to attend.

The symposium will be preceded by a call for contributions, inviting practitioners to submit an abstract on their work as a stimulus presentation or case study to support the discussions.
