Showcasing Effective Partnerships: Call for Contributions:

One of the most exciting aspects of CAN2017 will be showcasing practice from universities and colleges across the UK on how they are working in partnership with students. We are looking for staff and students to share specific examples of how they are working in partnership, how students are working as change agents or as co-researchers to improve their educational experience. We particularly welcome contributions that feature the innovative use of technology and support one of the following themes:

  1. Developing digital capability of staff and students
  2. Employability and graduate attributes
  3. Students as Researchers
  4. Curriculum co-design
  5. Impact of student partnerships
  6. International perspectives and practice


If you would like to propose a session for the conference please complete the Google Form by 23:59 on Friday 10th February 2017. More information about the call for contributions is available from the conference website and also in the document attached.
