Defining Partnership in Sensory Terms

Perkins, J. (2014). Defining Partnership in Sensory Terms. Learning at City Journal, 4(2), pp. 7-17.


Students as partners, is a fast-developing field within student engagement. By considering students not simply as recipients of knowledge or, consumers of higher educational offerings, but producers of their academic experience, and, partners in their learning, institutions are beginning to redefine the university experience of students by placing them at their centre. The challenge, however, is in understanding what active student partnership means, and more importantly what this means on an institutional basis. This article reveals the views of academics, students and professional staff which came out of a workshop regarding student partnership and covers a discussion of the strengths, possible definitions and concerns of such an approach.
