Student as Producer – short film

Students from the Lincoln School of Journalism have produced a short film about Student as Producer. The film was commissioned by NUS Scotland for their 2012 annual conference, which was held in Edinburgh.

The film is structured around three main principles that define Student as Producer:

  • a model for curriculum design
  • a framework for institutional change
  • as part of a global social movement for the recovery of the university as a radical political project

Enhancing Learning in the Social Sciences 4(3) Special Issue on Student as Producer

ELiSS – Enhancing Learning and Teaching in the Social Sciences

July 2012


This special issue of ELiSS, published by the Higher Education Academy and edited by Katie Strudwick and Jill Jameson, focuses on the Student as Producer agenda developed at the University of Lincoln.

The issue follows the development of Student as Producer  as an institutional priority at the University of Lincoln. Student as Producer focuses on the role of the student in engaging in research, collaborating with academic staff and becoming a producer of knowledge through a policy of research-informed teaching.

As part of this approach to teaching and learning, it explores innovative teaching practices and provides an opportunity to reflect on students’ experience of being involved in student as producer projects. Through case studies of innovative and research-engaged teaching, some papers offer a rare opportunity to listen to the student voice, including their reflections on the application of Facebook and podcasts as part of a teaching strategy. Wider discussions about the theoretical and moral shifts occurring in universities, the implications within HE following the Browne review, and a challenging of the broader purpose of universities are further explored in the longer academic papers.
