About this Event

What we’ve done, we’ve done together: Collaboration, Agency and Student Partnership

The University of Manchester Library is excited to announce that we are hosting a symposium to celebrate the tenth anniversary of our Library Student Team.

In keeping with the ethos of the team, and to continue rich conversations already happening in the sector, we’d like to invite others supporting, delivering and exploring student partnership to participate in the symposium. This will take place on:

Friday, 3rd May, 2024 from 11:00am-4:30pm at the University of Manchester.

Coffee, tea and a light lunch will all be provided.

This symposium will focus on themes around student partnership. To allow us to share experiences, expertise and reflections widely amongst attendees, the symposium will be run in a station rotation/world café style. On the day, you will be part of discussions on all four themes, with a variety of people. Ahead of the event, we will work with those registered to attend to compile a Padlet of examples, reflections and resources to kickstart conversations.

We hope to encourage connections and conversations around:

1. Student partnership and the student voice: How are we approaching partnership as a mechanism to listen to and be in conversation with students? What impact has this work had on your own context and the students who participate?

2. Student partnership and learning: How does student partnership work align with learning, academic success or other elements of university studies? What approaches do we use to ensure learning is a focus in our work?

3. Student partnership and equity: How does student partnership reflect work around equity, inclusion and access? What drivers and impact does partnership have on systemic barriers and elements of belonging and mattering? What changes are you working towards or have you seen?

4. Student partnership wildcard theme: this theme will be built out of suggestions on the crowd-sourced Padlet and conversations that emerge on the day.

Closing date for registration will be Friday, 19th April. We hope to be able to accommodate everyone interested in attending. If we do end up over-subscribed, we will first prioritise those bringing student partners and then run a wait list. If you are interested in supporting the symposium by leading discussion at a table (that is in no way expected or required), please do indicate on the form!

You can find a detailed symposium overview and agenda in our Student Team blogpost.
