What is students as partners? Why does it matter? 


How can student-staff partnerships transform the university learning experience? (Kelly Matthews, Australian Learning & Teaching Fellow)


We cannot radically reimagine the student experience without forging an active partnership between students and teaching staff. (NUS, 2014)


… it should be the norm, not the exception, that students are engaged as co-partners and co-designers in all university and department learning and teaching initiatives, strategies and practices. (Healey, 2012)
