This paper aims to explore if quadruple helix inspired active learning experiences within module design can be directed toward better student learning outcomes. In education, teaching and learning, active learning (AL) provides a suitable framing to allow for a range of influences to be managed and supported toward the co-creation of more inspiring experiences. A case is made for taking time to clarify the approach and its benefits, as well as the purpose, objectives, landscape, activities and resources applied supporting student engagement. Based on early insights from the data supplied through email interviews with students having participated in a module designed and inspired through a QHM AL approach, this paper proposes a conceptual framework as a guiding ‘north star’ toward facilitating co-creation and better engagement at this student and stakeholder nexus. Examples of data from the student experience are provided as signposts to assist in visualising the strength of using such a framework.
