Students as Learning Co-Designers – ‘Shifts’ and ‘Waves’ with Student-Educator Partnership

Abstract
‘Students and teachers as partners in teaching and learning’ challenges traditional hierarchies. So why should we do it? When students become learning co-designers, we see a shift from passivity to agency, a shift from merely doing to an awareness about what is being done, a shift from what a learner knows to who a learner is. When teachers enable student-educator partnerships, we see waves of student-centred improvements in the curriculum without compromising professional standards. However, are teachers prepared to relinquish control? Are students equipped to tackle this novel situation? We will share tried-and-tested practices and framework adopted in partnering with medical students to redesign pedagogy and curriculum.

Students as Co-assessors in Internship

Abstract
In a Work-Integrated Learning Internship, workplace supervisors play an important role in assessing the workplace performance of student interns. What would it look like if interns participated in the assessment process? What are the performance criteria by which the students would prefer to be assessed? How are they different from the criteria used by supervisors in the workplace? This presentation will share some initial observations about student partnership in workplace performance assessment in the Social Innovation and Global Citizenship Internship of the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Building on an Implementation Framework for Students as Partners – a Roadmap to Engagement

Abstract
Triggers to innovation and implementation often happen when needs must. Recent travel restrictions curtailed student overseas learning experiences and in their place local opportunities were created based on Students as Partners. From the results from 4 SaP education projects much has been learned from how to plan, implement and evaluate such peer education projects. This presentation will overview the 4 projects and share a process framework on how other may introduce SaP and how this may be built on.
