FW: Open Lectures at the University of Greenwich


The University of Greenwich holds monthly open lectures in teaching and learning.


The next open lecture will be on the 19th November, from 17:00-18:00 at our new Stockwell Street Building.


Speaker:   Dr Abbi Flint –Higher Education Academy

Title:   Engagement through partnership: students as partners in learning and teaching in Higher Education


Abstract: Engaging students in meaningful ways with their learning is arguably one of the most important issues facing higher education (HE) in the 21st Century. In recent years, partnership with students has become a key concept in the discourse of both the policy and practice of student engagement, although the term is often interpreted and employed in different ways. This session will draw on recent publications from the Higher Education Academy (HEA 2014; Healey, Flint and Harrington 2014) to outline a new framework for partnership with students in learning and teaching. 


The presentation will explore:

•             definitions and rationales for engagement through partnership

•             a new conceptual model for exploring the different areas of learning and teaching where partnership may take place

•             examples of sustainable and strategic practices

•             tensions, opportunities and suggestions for the development of work in this area
