Chapter 23: Pedagogical partnerships, identity building and self-authorship in geography higher education

Niamh Moore-Cherry


In the last decade, as the higher educational landscape has shifted, ‘partnership working’ has become an aspirational goal for institutions, policymakers, educators and student representative bodies. Partnerships can vary in nature and scale, including academic staff, students and professional staff in a variety of combinations. An ethos and culture of partnership in higher education impacts positively on student engagement by supporting the development of an enhanced student identity and sense of institutional belonging. This chapter focuses on pedagogical partnerships and their role in supporting the student journey towards self-authorship. In particular, it showcases partnership working in geography higher education and reflects on how this might be progressed and become a more mainstream pedagogy in 21st century geography programmes.
