Abstract [en]

Active Student Participation imagines learning as a shared venture between educators and students. It invites students to support, empower, and challenge each other’s learning, as well as helping them to be co-creators in planning, facilitating, and evaluating courses within higher education.

This companion aims to inspire those who want to approach new ways of learning in order to create a better course, as well as those who are out to challenge conventional forms of teaching and learning norms. It summarises a range of experiences in Swedish higher education and provides concrete examples of how students and educators can learn together. By reading this companion, you will meet a variety of voices and perspectives - from students and educators - both via text and through links to a rich collection of media.

Together, these voices tell us about a significant shift in roles within higher education that creates teaching and learning spaces with the opportunity to do things differently. In essence, Active Student Participation is about transformative learning, succinctly exemplified by one of the student contributors to this companion: “To experience any other form of education now would feel like nothing less than a fundamental step into the past.”

Abstract [en]

The ‘Continuous Development of Active Student Participation’ at Uppsala University is a co-led project between students and academic developers. The group has forged a new kind of student–faculty partnership within academic development. Teaming academic developers with students to work together on improving higher education pedagogy is a critical aspect in this work as both perspectives are valuable and necessary in creating a learning practice that is valid for students and teachers alike. There is significant potential for this model to be implemented by universities elsewhere.
