Don’t be passive. Be a Partner

9:30AM - 3:30PM



Don’t be passive. Be a Partner.

A Student-led Conference on Partnership, Power, and Progress.

22nd May 2019

During 2018/2019, the Students’ Union, the Centre for Education, seven Student Interns, and Academics from across the University, have worked in partnership to bring you the Enhancing Assessment through Partnership Project. Basically, we have worked together to make assessment at Queen’s better for you.

 So, why should you attend the Conference?

  • You will hear directly from the fantastic team of students and staff who have been working on this project. They will showcase progress made so far, and you will have the chance to question and challenge them
  • You will learn about how we will embed you as a partner in your education, and you will have the opportunity to contribute to how we achieve that going forward
  • You will be empowered to engage with students and staff to develop your own Partnership Projects, and be a part of the first project of its kind in Northern Ireland

Overall, we hope that this Conference will highlight the importance, and potential, of student-staff partnerships, and will offer you the opportunity to have your voice heard, and have a positive impact in improving engagement and experience for you, and your fellow students.


Here’s the plan (We will provide you with a full programme on the day):

9.30 – Kick off with Bacon butties, and Vegan options in the foyer of the Peter Froggatt Centre

Following this, you will hear from our Student Partnership Interns, and the Schools they’ve been working in, including AEL, Computer Science, Maths, Engineering, Biological Sciences, Natural and Built Environment

11.00 - Coffee and cake break

After some coffee and cake, you will hear from our Interns in the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Nursing and Midwifery, Law, and HAPP. Following our Interns, you will hear from your Students’ Union outgoing, and incoming Education Officers on the overall Queen’s Partnership Project, and what it means for you.

12.30 - Lunch & posters (we have asked Schools to design posters showcasing their Partnership Projects – make sure you check these out, you might be inspired!)

We have arranged a variety of workshops for you to participate in, these will give you the chance to hear about Projects in other areas, design your own Projects, and discuss student engagement, and experience, and what you think it should look like at Queen’s. More information and sign-ups for these will be provided on the day

3.00  - Close


To participate you must register in advance using the Book Online option above, and please book early as number limits will apply.

We can’t wait to host this brand new and exciting Student-led Conference for you, and look forward to seeing you on the day!
