As part of our collaboration with Surf Netherlands around innovation in learning and teaching, we held joint event hosted at the Jisc London offices on Tuesday 24 January 2017. The event was attended by 45 people including a Surf study group of about 20 staff from colleges and universitites. Delegates from the UK presented examples of how they are working with students to support innovation.
CAN was well represented through presentations from Emily Parkin, University of Lincoln, Marcus Elliott, Bishop Grosseteste University and Tom Lowe, University of Winchester representing the REACT project. Janina Dewitz, Innovations Officer, University College London shared their excellent work on LearnHack – a series of UCL hackathons on the theme of “Learning”. All presenters spoke about the importance of partnership working and how this is driving change across institutions. I though Emily’s slide summed up the power of student partnerships:
