At Westminster we view partnership as a reciprocal process in which we share responsibility for shaping our learning and teaching environments and experiences. We work through a co-creation model of partnership which encourages students and faculty to build collaborative and reciprocal relationships of learning.
Student partnership is an area of development in the Centre for Teaching Innovation and across Westminster. We have a well-established Students as Co-Creators Project and we are currently looking at expanding student representation across the institution and moving co-creation into the curriculum.
Westminster Co-Creators Principles
The Westminster Co-Creators Principles have been established in collaboration with previous student and staff partners of the Students as Co-Creators Programme. These principles reflect the contributions, opportunities, values and possible outcomes of partnership between students and staff.
The Student Partnership Team
The student partnership team oversee the Students as Co-Creators programme and actively provide other opportunities and resources for collaboration between students and staff at the University of Westminster. We believe that the process of partnership and co-creation can transform the learning and teaching experience. Together, we established the Westminster Co-Creators Principles, to share the contributions, opportunities, values and possible outcomes of partnership between students and staff.
We have a team of Student Partnership Ambassadors who play a key role in supporting the Students as Co-Creators programme by communicating with other students and participating in project selection and development panels:
Fatema-Zahra Somji – School of Media and Communication
Basma Idle, Kiu Sum, Mazarie Saeedi, Nishat Tasnim, and Tahmina Khatun – School of Life Sciences
If you are interested in joining the team as an ambassador or have any questions about student partnership at the university, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
