Abstract

This academic year (2021-22), the LiNCHigher evaluation team, based in the Lincoln Higher
Education Research Institute (LHERI) at the University of Lincoln, were tasked with piloting the setting
up and running of student researcher groups in schools and colleges. The aim of the pilot was to
encourage student voice, enhance student engagement and improve the quality and impact of
LiNCHigher’s Uni Connect outreach delivery through peer feedback.
In recent years the importance of student voice has grown considerably following the 1989 legally
binding Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) which states
that the views of the child should be assured and given due consideration in all settings, including
education. To this aim, Lundy (2007)
1 proposed a four-pronged model of child participation comprising
of space, voice, audience, and influence to ensure the student voice is heard and duly considered.
These interlinking prongs aim to not only capture the student’s voice but enable their views to be
expressed, listened to, and acted upon as appropriate. This model formed the main aim of the student
researcher pilot.
