This framework has been led by the HEA* to enable you to further engage students through partnership. The HEA regard partnership to be a relationship in which all involved are actively engaged in, and stand to gain from, the process of learning and working together.
Student engagement through partnership is important because it enables and empowers students to engage deeply in their learning and enhancement. For staff, working in partnership with students can help transform thinking about learning and teaching practices.
It has been written for all partners in learning and teaching (staff, students, institutions and students' unions) to reflect on, inspire and enhance their policy and/or practice.
