Jisc Change Agents’ Network Meet up for Staff and Students
The University of Lincoln, building on the success of the previous Jisc CAN face to face networking events, hosted a wonderful 1 day ‘meet up’ event for staff and students across the UK who are working in partnership on curriculum innovation projects in UK further education and skills and higher education. On the day, over 175 students and staff, from FE and HE, participated in an inspiring day of institutions’ showcases of projects and programmes, workshops, key notes and a student panel.
Like other Jisc Change Agents’ Network events, this day offered opportunities for sharing best practice from students working as change agents, digital pioneers, student fellows/ambassadors and students working in partnership with staff on technology related change projects across further education and skills and higher education. For many, the previous CAN events were successful because of the opportunity to talk to others doing similar projects in different ways across the country and the Meet Up in Lincoln certainly provided this.
The University of Lincoln was well placed to host the event, as you will see by reading the recently published CAN case study on the staff-student partnership work, ‘A research-engaged and collaborative community’ which is available on the Jisc CAN blog: https://can.jiscinvolve.org/wp/case-studies/ Dan Derricott, until recently, the Student Engagement Manager at the university, also presented a CAN webinar on 20 January 2016, on ‘Growing a whole institution culture of commitment to student engagement’.
