Embedding an ethos of student partnership in Australian university decision-making: the way forward

The final symposium for my National Senior Teaching fellowship will take place on 1 September 2017 here at UTS. This symposium will showcase the principles for student partnership in university decision-making and governance developed through national collaborative workshops with stakeholders from all aspects of the sector and provide opportunity for their discussion.

Cat O’Driscoll: National Student Engagement Coordinator, National Student Engagement Programme, Ireland, is our invited international speaker. Cat will be providing insights into Ireland’s higher education sector’s development of their principles for student partnership and the National Student Engagement Programme which is a collaborative initiative under development by the Union of Students in Ireland (USI), the Higher Education Authority (HEA) and Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI) in consultation with Student Partnerships in Quality Scotland (sparqs).

Initiatives from around Australia will be presented by students and staff to promote the ongoing sharing of ideas and experiences. This process was identified during the fellowship workshops as an important aspect of sustainable student partnership.

The symposium will be held at Aerial Function Centre 235 Jones Street, Level 7, Building 10, Ultimo NSW 2007.
