Facilitating students to be co-creators of their learning and teaching; a Scottish sector insight

Stef Black (Student Partnership in Quality Scotland - sparqs)

This paper will explore current practices popular in the Scottish higher education sector, which institutions and student associations use to enhance partnership working and enable students to cocreate their educational experience, particularly in the evaluation of their learning and teaching.


We will look at three main tools; firstly, the development and implementation of Student Partnership Agreement’s (SPAs) to build effective partnership working. Secondly, the practice of Student-led Teaching Awards (SLTAs) as an alternative vehicle for evaluating learning and teaching. Finally, the role of a robust student representation system to aid institutions in collecting and responding to feedback, as well as considering how best to foster an environment that supports students to give meaningful, purposeful feedback.
