We’re a group of students and staff members working together to explore what goes into creating and sustaining effective student-staff partnerships.
Our projects focus on the learning and teaching space, and how students can be partners in projects that improve the student experience. Our group are primarily connected with the School of Education in the College of Design and Social Context (DSC), but in the past have also involved students from other schools, and representatives and staff from the RMIT Student Union (RUSU).
