This workshop will offer participants an overview of select methodologies and conceptual frameworks that can encourage deep reflection and critical analysis in two areas: student voice, and student-staff partnership. Firstly, we will discuss the conceptual and discursive constructions of the student-university relationship, questioning the drivers, actors, and decision-makers involved, through a combination of critical theory and post-structuralism. We will then consider the use of Situational Analysis (Clarke, 2003) which posits that understanding can be deepened through the use of three kinds of analytic maps: situational maps, social worlds/ arenas maps, and positional maps. This approach has potential to draw together studies of discourse and agency, action and structure, and other material elements, to analyse the complexity of partnership situations.
