Call for presenters

We want to hear about your partnership activities- we are calling all students, staff and academics to get involved and share your experience at the 2022 National SaP Roundtable.

Our theme is Sustainability- so consider staff-student partnership initiatives relating to the UN Sustainability Development Goals, or the Sustainability of your partnership practice.
Apply the themes below to help you:

  1. Partnerships maintained into the future
    How is the SaP model being embedded in your university to ensure student partnership in educational and curriculum development is sustainable and maintained into the future?
  2. Transformative partnership outcomes
    Recognising that universities and students play a critical role in social transformation, what transformative outcomes have you achieved through SaP?
  3. Highlighting social impact against SDG’s
    Thinking of the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (UNSDG’s), what social impact are your SaP initiatives achieving against these goals in your institution?
  4.  ‘Leave no one behind’ at the core of partnership
    A core principle of the UNSDG’s is to ‘leave no one behind’. How does this principle inform SaP projects and initiatives you are working on at your university?
Presentation types

There are two ways you can get involved as a presenter at the roundtable-

  1. Case Study Presenter- Share your partnership initiative through a 30 minute presentation with 15 minutes questions.
  2. Panel Presenter- Work in partnership with our organising committee to be featured on an engaging panel discussion on partnership topics related to the themes above.

There will also be opportunity at the event for casual ‘Roundtable Chats’ where you can share your partnership outcomes and challenges.
