Past Partnership Projects

 

President Student Partner Interns 

20 students were allocated across the Faculties to analyse Semester 1 & 2 Unit survey data, from this then created resources based on the emerging themes. The resources include guides to Q&A Sessions, Zoom etiquette, the transition from sixth-form to University, exam guidance and more.

Resources created for the Transition to University & Resources to support staff and student engagement 

Institute of Teaching and Learning Fellows 

Institute Fellows are colleagues from across the University who are working with the Institute on a short term project that will support the University in achieving its goals in teaching and learning. These projects were developed in partnership with Student Partner Interns.

Online and Blended Learning Project

The online and blended learning student partners have worked with staff to review Online Content during the transition to blended learning. As part of this, they supported the transcription and subtitling of lectures and recorded seminars. From this work, the student partners then created resources to support students in reviewing their lectures, giving feedback, and working in partnership with staff. 

Diversity & Inclusion

This year, the University has recruited 3 Diversity and Inclusion student partners to collaborate with the Student’s Union Diversity & Inclusion Ambassadors on a range of projects from Manchester 10/10, Anti-racism training, and Curriculum Health Check.

Student 360

The Student 360 project looks at creating an interface similar to mymanchester that allows students to track and view their data from a broad spectrum of systems. This could include viewing their grades across their degree, extra-curricular activities, attendance (where recorded), and more effortless engagement with support services. This type of interface has been trialled in some areas of the University, but they are now looking at creating an overall interface across programmes

Flexible Learning Programme

The Flexible Learning Programme will explore how flexibility over pace, place, time, mode and qualification can support learners’ individual choices. As this develops, there will be a range of staff and student workshops. The Student Partner Interns will create and run the Student Engagement workshops, ensuring we capture the face-to-face and online learning experiences.
