Decision making in partnership: tools to support partnership planning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

RAISE convened a major event on June 23rd 2017, hosted at Birmingham City University. This was undertaken under the auspices of the RAISE Special Interest Group on Partnership. The event organisers were successful in bringing together leading, international commentators and practitioners to discuss and reflect on developments in partnerships between students and staff in Higher Education. We noted that students and staff working in partnership has rapidly become a major feature of the HE landscape around the world. There is much evidence to show that partnership working may be a powerful catalyst to enhance student engagement and enhance student learning. Indubitably there are benefits to staff and institutions too. Developing such an ethos presents an attractive alternative to neo-liberal, transactional and consumer models of HE. We wished to take stock of these developments and explore the opportunities, challenges, and consequences of such approaches. Is partnership truly inclusive and open to all? What are the ethical tensions? Are some of these practices more ‘pseudo-partnership’ then genuine? Is there a danger of appropriation through neo-liberal or managerialist agendas?We asked contributors to summarise the presentations and workshops they gave at the event for these proceedings and we are delighted that so many of them have been able to do so
