Students working with their institution in shaping the direction of learning

This element of the Student Engagement Framework relates to the ways in which students can comment on their learning experiences either individually or as a group. It builds on the idea of students working in partnership with academics and other staff at the subject level to bring about enhancements in their learning experience.

The 'Learning and Teaching Engagement' and 'Representation and Partnership' sections of the resource library contains lots of information relating  to this.


Two particularly good resources are:

Student Engagement in Curriculum Development - John Moore


At John Moores University Liverpool research was conducted into curriculum development  with involvement from students throughout the entrire process.



Students and Staff Co-creating the Curriculum - C.Bovill (Glasgow University)


Research into examples from Scotland, Ireland and the USA into student engagement in curriculum design; originally presented by Catherine Bovill to the Higher Education Academy.

Full title - Students and Staff Co-creating the Curriculum: Research into 3 Case Studies.


From the resource library page you  can also use the resource library search box where  you can input specific search terms such as -

'students working with their institution', 'shaping  the  direction of learning', 'working together' or any other suitable criteria including Institution Titles and this will bring  up all information relating to your search.

The Top 10 Most Viewed resources can also  be found on the resource library page.
