The theme of conference was ‘supporting effective partnerships’ and built on the successes of the previous CAN Conferences, with our keynotes involving students and staff in partnership; student-led sessions showcasing current practice around the conference themes; a student panel showcasing best practice and plenty of opportunities for networking. We are also offered an in-depth insight into how the University of Exeter has evolved its approaches to students as change agents.
We are aware of all the excellent practice taking place in colleges on working with students as partners/change agents/ambassadors and we had representation from FE and Skills at this event. You can view a short video from participants sharing their views of what they learnt from CAN 2017. Our thanks to Gus Ayling, from the University of Lincoln for producing this clip.
The conference featured a map of the locations of staff-student partnerships that people shared as they registered at the conference (the images below are linked to the map). Photos of the wonderful graphic recording of the highlights of the conference created by Sandra Howgate will be available soon.
