Pre-Symposium: Student Partnership Program 2022


Student Partnership Co-Creation Program

Student-staff partnerships have been adopted and studied by many institutions and scholars worldwide. There are many benefits of such a partnership, such as it is a helpful lens when looking into change agencies and opening up new spaces for learning, change, and innovation. With the prediction that the industrial revolution 4.0 will significantly reshape the landscape of work and essential work skills needed in the future, students learning needs to be cross-disciplinarily, personalized, focused on human skills and competence building to pace with the projected radical transformations.

The Co-Creation Program aims to provide a platform for students, faculty, and staff to form teams to jam innovative ideas of the design of curricular and co-curricular programs that address the educational needs of the 21st century.
