Staff and students at St George’s sharing perspectives on teaching, learning and life in Higher Education.

The Education Ideas Hub provides an opportunity for staff and students to come together to discuss topics integral to life in higher education. Each event will be led by a staff-student partnership and will focus on one of the many aspects within the student life cycle. Topics can range from curriculum and teaching, to careers and employability, to mental health and wellbeing.

The grant awards funding to small teams made up of staff and students to carry out a project that aims to enhance the student experience. You will hear about the various projects that have taken place, their outcomes and the legacy that they hope to leave.

These sessions will:

  • provide a networking opportunity for staff and students over some light refreshments

  • showcase work that is being carried out by staff and student collaborations to enhance the student experience

  • highlight areas that are essential for students and staff to discuss and generate further ideas for collaboration

  • bring together all aspects of Student Life

  • encourage students and staff to engage in the St George’s community and foster a life-long relationship with the university.

Previous Education Ideas Hub events have included showcasing how staff and students have successfully published in partnership and interactive sessions about whether leadership development should be part of a transformative curriculum. The sessions delivered around leadership transformed into a Student-Staff partnership grant and the group will be presenting their project at an Education Ideas Hub event in January 2020.
