Meaningful Student Voice & Co-Designing

Wednesday, February 14, 2024 DCQE Staff Development Room (2nd Floor)

This session will give an overview of different practices to engage students in developing education. First of all focusing on Student Voice, actively creating opportunities for feedback and dialogue about the student experience is prioritised and core practice at Portsmouth.

The first half of this session will outline the different ways Portsmouth and individual course teams can seek students’ feedback to manage students’ expectations. This half will also give top-tips for creating positive student-staff dialogue. The second half will be delivered by the University of Portsmouth Students’ Union who will outline how to work with, and co-design, with your Student Academic Representatives through Student Voice Committees. Drawing on sector best practice and activities, this interactive session will support colleagues to co-design in their own context, as well as equipping colleagues with theories and ideas from the literature.

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Engage in new activities relating to students’ voice/feedback activity, including managing of students’ expectations.
  • Discuss students’ union democratic and student representative practices supported at the University of Portsmouth.
  • Apset of applications for co-designing with students in your local context (academic programme or professional service)
  • Critically reflect on the benefits and complexities of co-designing an element of the student experience.
