Co-creation via student internships

Butler, Diane and Potter, Andrew (2024). Co-creation via student internships. In: Advance HE Students as Co-creators Symposium 2024, 31 Jan 2024, Online.


Internships offer an attractive model to facilitate student co-creation. This session will look at the benefits of such an approach in a project focussing on the employment of student interns within the STEM faculty of the Open University. Interns were recruited exclusively from minoritised student groups as defined by the University's Access and Participation Plan. Project evaluations demonstrated both the importance of intern autonomy in the design of the project and the associated high-quality impact of the intern voice in staff training and development spaces.
