Student as Producer at Newcastle College University Centre is based on the principle that our students are active agents in their learning, directly involved in the production of knowledge, and partners in our higher education community. There are six different ways staff and students become engaged in Student as Producer at Newcastle College University Centre.
Student as Producer recognises the student voice within higher education, repositioning the power dynamics of the source of HE course content, its delivery and ultimately wider knowledge generation.

As such, Student as Producer for us involves supporting and enhancing the connections between teaching, research and the vocational.
