Tell us about it: diverse student voices in creative practice

This paper reflects on the development of a student voice project that researched into the positive learning experiences of high achieving art and design students from a wide variety of backgrounds. We wanted to build up a bank of positive case studies of student learning experiences and explore the institutional and personal factors that contributed to their academic success. The students chose to respond in varying ways often using the visual medium through sketchbooks, DVDs, books and board games. These have been shared with staff and students through exhibitions and workshops where, they can interact with the artefacts and discuss diversity and achievement. This project has captured the imagination and interest of the wider HE sector as it relates both to student voice and diversity. It has also been transformational in our own CETL developments around co-creating solutions with students.
