USQ Salon - Building Student-Staff Partnerships from the ground-up in the time of COVID-19

14 JUL 2020
2.00 PM - 3.00 PM

Madelaine-Marie Judd with Julia Groening, Naima Crisp and Franciele Spinelli

Madelaine-Marie Judd is the Student Partners Adviser at The University of Queensland. In this role, Madelaine-Marie co-leads the Student-Staff Partnership Program. Prior to this role, Madelaine-Marie was the Project Manager (Graduate Attributes) at Griffith University, in which she led a multi-disciplinary team in the development of pedagogical resources for staff and students. Madelaine-Marie was also the Research Project Manager for four nationally commissioned Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching research grants (graduate employability, postgraduate student experience, Model United Nation Conferences, student evaluation of courses and teaching) and served as a Consultant on numerous OLT grants and fellowships. During Madelaine-Marie’s tenure as Research Project Manager, she was also invited to attend the 2014 G20 World Leaders Summit, G20 Pre-Summit and the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance Summit 2017.

In a context of performance-based funding, now more than ever before we must engage students in innovative and meaningful ways. This then poses the question: how can we foster a cultural transformation where students and staff authentically engage in partnership for the betterment of the ‘student experience’?
This USQ Salon will showcase the ongoing cultural transformation that is occurring at The University of Queensland, in relation to the Student-Staff Partnership Program in the COVID-19 era. Key lessons learned, common pitfalls, and recommendations for practice (including in the form of the Partnership in Action booklet) will be shared during this presentation.
After the presentation, we also invite you to pose questions to Madelaine-Marie, and members from the Student-Staff Partnerships team (Julia Groening, Naima Crisp and Franciele Spinelli).

Date: 14 July
