The Student & Teaching Engagement through Partnerships (STEP) publication presents a range of reflections, experiences and practice from student-staff partnerships at The University of Manchester. The publication is updated regularly and welcomes contributions from anyone at the University working on any student-staff partnership projects or initiatives.

What we are looking for

We are looking for a rich snapshot of your student-staff partnership experience in any format that suits you. For example:

Descriptive paragraph, case study, doodle or sketch, reflective piece, short video clip, list of words or poem of how you felt doing partnership work.

Or, we can arrange short video/audio interviews with you to discuss your partnership experiences.
