We are approaching the nomination deadline for the Student Success Through Partnership: A Student Learning Conference and Expo, which will be held on Wednesday 1 March 2023 as part of SLAR’s LTExChange Symposium season.

We invite Teesside University colleagues to nominate any innovative and dynamic student partnership projects they may be involved with, for inclusion in the expo. We ask for a short statement encompassing the project brief and how the student wishes to display their work (poster / live demonstration / video / stand). The brief should be no more than 500 words or a 2-minute video and should be submitted to StudentLearningEvents@tees.ac.uk by 16.30 on Friday 27th January 2023.

Thank you to those that have already submitted a nomination – decisions on successful nominations will follow in early February, after the closing date. 

The theme of the event is ‘Student Success Through Partnership’ with partnership being explored under three key areas:

  • staff/student partnership working
  • collaboration through industry/professional experience
  • the student voice: a positive vessel for change

Our aim is that the event will contribute to the nurturing and enhancement of graduate attributes through learning and research and will help to cultivate a sense of belonging at Teesside through partnership and engagement.

We look to highlight the correlation between success and partnership, and to inspire students via shining a spotlight on current partnership projects.

The event will consist of four key parts:

  • An opening keynote speech
  • An exhibition of current student partnership projects, with awards voted for by a collection of Teesside University stakeholders and students.
  • A series of student voice ‘campfire’ discussion hubs on some of higher education’s current ‘wicked problems’
  • A panel talk and Q&A around embodying the values of partnership though University and beyond

If you have any questions, please contact the team via StudentLearningEvents@tees.ac.uk
