Abstract

This case study discusses the student engagement project, taking place over a 6 month period between January and July 2016, within the School of Social and Political Sciences, at the University of Lincoln. This school covers five disciplines within the Social Sciences, including Criminology, Social Policy, International Relations, Politics and Sociology. The project gained internal funding from SEED (Student Engagement in Educational Development). The project worked with four students as facilitators, and three academics, as part of a collective research team, to evaluate student and staff perceptions of student engagement opportunities from the wider student cohort within the School. This ‘Student as Producer’ (SAP) project enabled a co-producing role for both students and staff (Neary, Saunders, Hagyard, & Derricott, 2014). The engagement of students was integral to the project with them being both researchers and participants. Student facilitators were involved in project dissemination, through a joint presentation at the 2016 Raise Conference and a number of internal university events.
