What is co-creation?

Co-creating allows students to collaborate with course leaders to help design the course curriculum. It is based on constructive learning theory, which says that learners construct knowledge and meaning from lived experiences rather than from passively taking in information1. Co-creation gives students a voice and a stake in their learning, and allows the sharing of ideas and ensures that learning is reflective of the students' needs. 

Benefits of co-creation2:

  • Co-creation engages students more deeply in the subject content and meaning
  • Brings fresh perspectives and insights
  • Helps ensure curriculum considers all viewpoints and allows all students to have a voice
