Three case studies, three years and three differing student-led methodologies. The common factor across all three case
studies is that they are informed by student engagement and have a student-led focus. Research carried out by a team
comprising of academics, support services and students explored the use of learning technologies in higher education with
the aim of improving the learning experience for all. We share and explore our use of; students as co-researchers, open
space technology, and students as partner methodologies to evaluate and understand the complex questions surrounding
technology enhanced learning at one institution to create clear, understandable and actionable information that is
negotiated between staff and students. In this paper we contrast the practicalities and lessons learned of each approach
and share our developing understanding of student engagement for evaluation and educational development.
