The Student Fellowship Scheme (SFS) at The University of Winchester recruits and trains students to work on targeted educational development projects alongside academics and professional staff. The SFS evolved from the Jisc-funded FASTECH project, a collaborative project involving staff and students at The University of Winchester and Bath Spa University that advanced understanding of assessment-for-learning with technology at both universities and showed the potential for engaging students as active partners in educational development projects. It is now run as a partnership between the university and the Winchester Student Union and there are currently approximately 60 Student Fellows working on a diverse range of research projects. This case study looks at how the scheme has been scaled up since FASTECH and how the principles of student engagement have become embedded across the wider university community.
