Reflections on the development of a technology enhanced learning App through student–led collaboration
The University of XX is a Teaching Intensive Research Informed (TIRI) institution that places a strong emphasis on teaching and learning. In 2016 a successful bid was made for Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) Catalyst funding in Innovation in teaching and learning. The bid written by the principal investigators was based on their mutual interest in students as partners (Healey et al., 2014) and the co-production of technology-based learning interventions and aimed to engage undergraduate students in researching their own student body, to discover the needs of the student community. This paper discusses the process of the technological development and reflects on the project incorporating student and staff voice.
