CPD Session ‘Partnership working with students to develop staff development

Our morning CPD Session titled: ‘Partnership working with students to develop staff development’ will be presented by Katy Savage, Fiona Conway, Emma Compton-Daw, and Stuart Boon, of Strathclyde.

Abstract: Over the last few years there has been a wide interest in engaging with students as partners in learning and teaching. There are many benefits to this partnership working and many of us actively encourage staff through our development activities to consider engaging in this way of working. However, have we considered how we might work in partnership with students to develop staff development activities? The presenters will share their experiences of working in partnership with students to develop a staff development CPD workshop “What about me? Supporting staff, supporting students” and through discussion and activities will encourage participants to consider the opportunities that might exist for partnership working in an academic development context.
