This Learning Circle is now closed.

The purpose of this Learning Circle was to explore co-creation practice at Warwick. Co-creation can be between staff and students, between academic staff and professional services colleagues, or with community and industry. At its best, co-creation can be a collaborative, reciprocal partnership in which all participants have the opportunity to contribute equally to the development of curriculum, or projects and decision making.

Our aim was to build a community of academic, professional services staff and students who can work together in partnership.

Our Learning Circle had a diverse membership of colleagues from across academic disciplines, as well as students and professional services staff. Our goals were to:

  • Draw on current literature about co-creation and student engagement
  • Challenge conventional notions of the students as subordinate to the expert staff member
  • Explore how co-creation might improve the staff and student experience at Warwick

We worked on a WIHEA funded project and through this work, as well as the Learning Circle, we sought to:

  • Develop a better understanding of the co-creation process in Higher Education
  • Catalogue a library of case studies to aid dissemination, method and practice
  • Define roles and responsibilities in the various forms of co-creation
  • Make recommendations to policy for appropriate governance

One of the outputs of this Learning Circle and the funded project was a research paper, published in RAISE: Student Engagement in Higher Education:
