Student participation is an issue of great importance to most Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). The different modules of this MOOC show the wide range of this topic. Each HEI has its own way of implementing the concept of student participation. With the following best practice examples we would like to give you an insight into the different approaches and give you a feeling for the roles you can take on as a student.
