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
British Conference for Undergraduate Research 2012 was held on the 19th and 20th of March 2012 at The University of Warwick and was organised by Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning. It was open to all and featured spoken papers, lectures, poster presentations, performances and workshops delivered by undergraduate students presenting their own work, as well as discussion on developing undergraduate research in UK universities. Prof Mike Neary ran a speed networking session for the students and gave the closing keynote.
The evaluation is based on the Teaching and Learning Plan Evaluation (Student as Producer), which incorporates Key Performance Indicators (May 2012).
The Plan distinguishes between internal and external sources of information that form the basis for determining the achievements of SaP. The data collection and analysis will be focused on the further improvements of SaP’s contribution to the research engaged teaching and learning strategy of the University.
