Staff Student Partnerships
Students and staff together make our university. Our work in partnership is celebrated in the resources available here. This includes collaboration within and beyond the curriculum over many years - from joint planning and delivery of teaching and support to research activity from inception to publication. Partnerships stretch into whole university strategic initiatives ranging from the roll out of Canvas to joint working groups on assessment and feedback, BAME success and the collaborative organisation of community music festivals, career conferences and disciplinary debates.
We have produced resources for the sector and participated in a number of cross institution projects. Our work has been disseminated nationally and you'll find links to some of that below. If you'd like to write a case study of the way students and staff work reciprocally in your area, please contact UHSSP@herts.ac.uk .
