History of RAISE
Principles of RAISE
Foster student’s willingness and readiness to engage by enhancing their self-belief.
Embrace the point that students have diverse backgrounds, expectations, orientations and aspirations – thus different ‘ways of being a student’, and to welcome, respect and accommodate all of these in an inclusive way.
Enable and facilitate trust relationships (between staff:students and students:students) in order to develop a discourse with each and all students and to show solidarity with them
Create opportunities for learning (in its broadest sense) communities so that students can develop a sense of competence and belonging within these communities.
Teach in ways to make learning participatory, dialogic, collaborative, authentic, active and critical.
Foster autonomy and creativity, and offer choice and opportunities for growth and enriching experiences in a low risk and safe setting.
Recognise the impact on learning of non-institutional influences and accommodate these
Design and implement assessment for learning with the aim to enable students to develop their ability to evaluate critically the quality and impact of their own work.
Work in partnership at all opportunities by seeking to negotiate and reach a mutual consensus with students on managing workload, challenge, curriculum and assessment for their educational enrichment – through a partnership model – without diluting high expectations and educational attainment; by developing mechanisms for all students to democratically participate in all aspects of the university that impact directly or indirectly on them.
Enable students to become active citizens and develop their social and cultural capital.
