Future leaders who thrive in the face of uncertainty; agile and able to generate new ideas and solutions to problems we can’t yet imagine; innovative thinkers - this is the calibre of graduates to which universities aspire. Students rarely get opportunities to take leadership in their own learning within their degree programmes. Students as partners is a way of thinking that positions students as change agents who share responsibility for learning and teaching with university staff – going beyond student engagement that fosters active learning. Students as Partners shifts students from learning from to learning with academics at the forefront of knowledge creation and teaching innovations. This workshop will engage participants in discussions about students as partners: definitions, motivations, current practices, and emerging research. Stories of student-staff partnership already happening at Murdoch will be shared. Models will be presented to prompt conversation about the outcomes, barriers and opportunities of student-staff partnership approaches at unit of study, degree programme and institutional levels. Participants will leave with new insights into ways of thinking and talking about student-staff partnerships; ideas about implementing students as partners initiatives; and a sense of existing partnership efforts happening locally, nationally and internationally.
