Jisc is on the look out for 30 students currently studying at college or university in the UK to join its student partners project.
Jisc student partners will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas on how to better education and learning experience. Their involvement will help Jisc to understand what technology and digital skills are important in their education and research.
To apply, candidates must be a current student (from September 2019 to June 2020) and aged 18 or over on 1 September 2019.
Caitlin Bloom, who runs Jisc’s student partners project, explained:
“Students are the experts in their own education, as they experience learning first hand every day.
"We would like to work in partnership with a range of students to ensure our priorities match the learning and research tools that are needed for current and future students to succeed.
“Our student partners get involved in all sorts of exciting opportunities, including attending our flagship annual edtech event, Digifest. They will have the chance to present or join panel discussions, take part in social media activity, record podcasts or provide comment for the media.”
Interested in taking the next steps?
Students interested in joining Jisc should contact firstname.lastname@example.org and Caitlin Bloom will answer queries.
The application deadline is 20 September 2019 and a shortlist will be invited to phone interviews shortly after.
