Community Engagement: Developing and Sustaining Community Partnerships for Student Participation in Community-Engaged Learning and Research

This symposium/workshop brought together teaching staff, researchers, practitioners and voluntary sector representatives from Warwick and elsewhere, to consider together questions of what works in student-community engagement, and how such engagement can best be developed and sustained in ways that benefit HE pedagogy, create knowledge, and have positive social impacts.

Discussions were led off by guest speakers from two of the UK's longest-standing examples of sustained student-community engagement programmes:

After hearing from Juliet and Emma, the morning was spent in informal, friendly but well-structured discussion about how a university can develop sustained mutually beneficial partnerships with local ‘civil society’, as part of its core business of research and teaching. The morning was facilitated by Mark Hinton, CLL's Community Engagement Development Manager and convenor of IATL's interdisciplinary Community Engagement UG module, and was a joint IATL/Centre for Lifelong Learning event.
