Students as Colleagues: The Impact of Working on Campus on Students and Their Attitudes towards The University Experience
Millard, Luke
Journal of Teaching and Learning for Graduate Employability, v11 n1 p37-49 2020
This paper considers research that engaged with a university wide population of students who were employed on campus to better understand why they chose to work alongside their studies; how this impacted upon their attitudes to study and the university, and the benefits for those students. This paper reveals that the primary motivation to work on campus is the development of skills; considers the nature of those skills and behaviours; discovers the changing relationship between student workers and university staff; and discusses how engagement leads to an enhanced sense of student confidence and belonging. The paper concludes by considering the implications for the university and sector and how the outcomes might be best deployed for impact on those students who would most benefit.
