Call for Papers: Student as Producer Conference

University of Lincoln – 26/27th June 2013

Student as Producer aims to establish research-engaged teaching and learning at an institutional level as the organising principle of the University of Lincoln and the basis for all curriculum development and review.
Student as Producer is funded by the Higher Education Academy through 2013 as part of the NTFS Projects strand.

To mark the end of the funded period of the project, we are holding a conference on the 26th and 27th of June 2013. This event will provide an opportunity to showcase project activities and outcomes, as well as sharing the experiences of colleagues nationally and internationally who are engaged in similar work. At the core of this work lies the ambition to re-engineer the relationship between research and teaching, and between staff and students, so as to create a highly productive academic and intellectual environment.

Further details of the project can be found at http://studentasproducer.lincoln.ac.uk

Call for Papers

We are inviting proposals for contributions to the conference in the form of 30-minute presentations or 60-minute workshops. Proposals should demonstrate how they match one or more of the following key themes:

  • Conceptual interpretations of student engagement
  • Students as producers of the world they will live in: social justice and social enterprise
  • Organisational change to re-engineer the relationship between students and staff
