Co-creation means different things to different people.

Some definitions are that co-creation is:

…when staff and students work collaboratively with one another to create components of curricula and/or pedagogical approaches. — Bovill, C., A. Cook-Sather, P. Felten, L. Millard, and N. Moore-Cherry. 2016. ‘Addressing Potential Challenges in Co-Creating Learning and Teaching: Overcoming Resistance, Navigating Institutional Norms and Ensuring Inclusivity in Student–Staff Partnerships’. Higher Education 71(2):195–208.

…collaborative, reciprocal… through which all participants have the opportunity to contribute equally, although not necessarily in the same ways, to curricular or pedagogical conceptualization, decision making, implementation, investigation, or analysis. — Cook-Sather, A., Bovill, C., & Felten, P. 2014. Engaging students as partners in learning and teaching: A guide for faculty. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass.

You can learn more about co-creation on the IATL website, including funding opportunities.

We welcome bookings from students and staff. While co-creation activities will typically involve both staff and students, it is not a requirement that bookings involve both.

The purpose of The Co-creation Space is to facilitate the formal and informal co-creation activities of staff and students. We may reject booking requests for other uses or which have capacity or other practical issues.

Examples of use we envision include:

  • Scheduled teaching sessions that have a co-creation element
  • Staff/student meetings, such as SSLCs
  • Groupwork activities with a co-creation goal

The space’s practical capacity depends on the room layout and the activities taking place. As a rough guide, the room can accommodate 40 people without moving around, or less for more dynamic activities or when sharing the space.

Ventilation

You are encouraged to keep windows open for airflow, where it is possible, safe and secure — even in cold weather.

Planning your event

If you are running a formal event in the spaces:

  • Please note your Covid-19 mitigations in your risk assessment — you can use the University’s overarching risk assessment. You do not need to share these with the Library, but please get in touch with us if you have any questions — teachinggrid at warwick dot ac dot uk
  • You should also think about the type of activity you’re organising, as lively activities will have more significant risks and need more consideration than events requiring attendees to remain seated
  • Warwick Food and Drink will deliver to events through the usual booking process
