Student Partner - Hackathon Challenge!

Are you interested in improving the experience of students at the University? Would you like to join likeminded students and staff, in fun and creative workshops focusing on how the university can enhance the student experience? Would you like to gain skills and attributes that are recognised by employers? Plus receive an open reference aligned to the University of Brighton Graduate Attributes framework, and a LinkedIn endorsement?

As part of the University’s aim to involve students as partners and changemakers in educational enhancement, we are looking to recruit University of Brighton students to work with us on this Education and Student Experience Scholarship Project. The project involves students and staff to investigate the use of a ‘hackathon’ – in this case, an immersive and collaborative approach to problem-solving and educational development.

You will work in partnership with academic staff in the Learning and Teaching Hub and across the university to help plan, coordinate, participate and evaluate the use of hackathons for educational enhancement. 

This is a casual, flexible post, where the work undertaken will be on an ad hoc basis, as described in the job description.
