The Australian Centre for Student Equity and Success acknowledges Indigenous peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands on which our campuses are situated. With a history spanning 60,000 years as the original educators, Indigenous peoples hold a unique place in Australia. We recognise the importance of their knowledge and culture, and reflect the principles of participation, equity, and cultural respect in our work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and future, and consider it an honour to learn from our Indigenous colleagues, partners, and friends.

Event information

Webinar Two: Engaging students and staff in inclusive partnerships in global learning before, during and beyond COVID-19

The second webinar in the Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia (HERDSA) series will be presented by Wendy Green (University of Tasmania) on Thursday 14 May.


‘Students as partners’ (SaP) is a particular approach to student engagement, which positions students as genuine contributors to all aspects of university life, including the curriculum. This webinar will provide examples of practices, which have engaged diverse students and lecturers as partners in global learning, at home and abroad, in the formal and co-curriculum during the past few years. These practices, drawn from a larger collection of projects developed in four Australian universities, under the umbrella of an Australian Learning and Teaching Fellowship on ‘Engaging students as partners in global learning’ brought staff and students from diverse cultural and national backgrounds together to design, implement and evaluate rich global learning experiences. Participants will be invited to discuss these past practices, and the implications for continuing to engage with students as partners in global learning during, and post COVID-19.
