Creating ‘excellent’ partnerships: reflections on practice

Barnett, Laura and Heron, Marion and Balloo, Kieran ORCID: (2021) Creating ‘excellent’ partnerships: reflections on practice. In: Exploring disciplinary teaching excellence in higher education: student-staff partnerships for research. Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., Cham, Switzerland, pp. 199-208. ISBN 978-3-030-69157-8


This chapter presents voices and experiences of the author contributors of this book to foreground their views about the process of working in partnership and how this has informed their developing understandings of teaching excellence. One of the purposes of this chapter is to present authentic accounts of collaborative workings which reflect both student and staff voices. A second purpose of this chapter is to highlight how collaborative research on contextualised teaching excellence can enhance understandings and make what is often tacit more transparent and shared. The underpinning theme of the chapter is the power of a student-staff partnership approach to exploring pedagogy as reflected through collective voices.
