Student as Producer is the organising principle for teaching and learning at the University of Lincoln in the UK. Student as Producer is an attempt to deal with the dysfunctional relationship between research and teaching that lies at the core of Higher Education. It does this by regarding undergraduate students as being part of the academic project of the university. The talk will present the history of Student as Producer, making links with Humboldt’s vision for the University of Berlin in 1811, and with the radical student protests of 1968. Student as Producer’s claim to radicality will be supported by reference to the critical social theory on which it is based. The talk will also demonstrate the very practical ways in which Student as Producer is being made to work across the University of Lincoln, through its quality assurance and enhancement structures, its marketing and publicity, its events and conferences, its online and web based presence, its publications and its involvement with students and with other universities.
