[Join us online] Students as Partners (SaP) Series, 5-30 November 2021

Message from Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning


Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, The University of Hong Kong

About the Series

Students as Partners draws much attention from educators around the world as the partnership becomes a global trend to engage students to contribute to curriculum design, pedagogical conceptualisation, decision-making, implementation, investigation, and analysis in higher education. It creates excellent opportunities for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, curriculum development, and faculty professional development.

In this series, we invited global practitioners and researchers to talk about the best practices based on their successful projects or research works at different universities in Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Concerns and perspectives at different levels (e.g., daily teaching, curriculum/programme design, and institutional framework) will be discussed. Student partners will co-present in some sessions.

Join us and get inspired to start your own journey towards involving students as partners.
