Today my guest is Associate Professor Kelly Matthews, a teacher and Academic Researcher at The University of Queensland’s Institute for Teaching & Learning Innovation. Kelly asks: Why can’t students be more involved in curriculum and assessment decisions? In this episode we look at Students as Partners, currently a growing practice in higher education that challenges assumptions about the role of students in learning, teaching, and university decision-making. We explore the value of curiosity and asking lots of questions, as well as ideas around student-voice, collaboration, empathy, and reciprocity. Kelly also reflects on the profound impact of Hurricane Katrina on her personal and professional approach.
