    Abstract

    Many universities and colleges across the world are taking an increasing interest in working with Students as Partners (SaP) on an institution-wide or subject-level basis to enhance student engagement (SE) and improve retention. Such collaborations are complex and to effect change it is important to recognise that no 'one size fits all' regarding SE and partnership. This activity-rich workshop will offer delegates two case studies on how SaP can enhance SE and the practice of both students and staff. Roisín will share with you the impact of SaP on the individual staff and student participants involved in Ulster's What Works project (2013-2016), and the extent to which this influences staff-student engagement and institutional ways of working. Tom will invite delegates to reflect on their institution's approach to assessing SE and present a case study from the first year of the University of Winchester's Centre for Student Engagement. This session will close with an action plan activity allowing delegates to return to their home institution with plans for the summer and following academic year.
