Fostering Student Leadership

#150Leaders: Fostering Student Leadership

The Council of Deans of Health has published a report on student leadership in higher education. Drawing on reflections, recommendations and examples of good practice from the Student Leadership Programme, the publication #150Leaders: Fostering Student Leadership, highlights the importance of teaching leadership as experience as opposed to theory and how students can be motivated to be leaders from the start of their higher education experience. The publication also emphasises the importance of students being co-creators of their learning and educational experience, which was one of the key elements in the creation and delivery of the Programme.
