Pedagogies of partnership: What works? seeks to identify whether the student learning experience is enhanced or in any way made different through the implementation of teaching and learning that is explicitly intended to foster partnership. The value of student-staff partnerships and student engagement is recognised nationally and in literature.

The report suggests that the process of partnership working in undergraduate learning and teaching is as important as the end product. It also highlights that while partnership working is often defined as the relationship between staff and student, the importance of peer-to-peer partnership and student partnership with the external environment is key.

Additional Information:1. The project utilised a multi case study, mixed methods approach, working across four case study disciplines. This was a purposive sample, selected firstly to represent contrasting academic traditions (from STEM, Humanities, and the Creative Arts) and secondly on the basis of acknowledged engagement in principles of research-engaged learning and teaching, which lie at the heart of Student as Producer. The areas selected as case studies were: Biomedical Science; History; Psychology; and Media Production. Information was gathered through a combination of questionnaires, interviews, focus groups and secondary data. 2. The Higher Education Academy (HEA) is the national body for learning and teaching in higher education. We work with universities and other higher education providers to bring about change in learning and teaching. We do this to improve the experience that students have while they are studying, and to support and develop those who teach them. Our activities focus on rewarding and recognising excellence in teaching, bringing together people and resources to research and share best practice, and by helping to influence, shape and implement policy - locally, nationally, and internationally. 3. The University of Lincoln was named among the UK's top 10 modern universities in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015. We have some of the most satisfied students in the UK, rating in the top 25% nationally in a number of subject areas of the National Student Survey 2015 with Psychology ranked number one. We are recognised for our pioneering approach to working with employers, winning a Lord Stafford Award and a Times Higher Education Award. Graduate prospects are strong with nine out of ten of Lincoln’s most recent graduates in work or further study six months after finishing their course. In the Research Excellence Framework 2014, more than half of our submitted research was judged to be internationally excellent or world leading, with Lincoln ranked in the UK’s top 10 for quality of research outputs in two major subject areas. - See more at:
