Student as Producer is a HEA-funded project and university-wide initiative that restates the meaning and purpose of higher education by reconnecting the core activities of universities, i.e., research and teaching, in a way that consolidates and substantiates the values of academic life. The core values of academic life are reflected in the quality of students that the University of Lincoln aims to produce. Student as Producer emphasises the role of the student as collaborators in the production of knowledge. The capacity for Student as Producer is grounded in the human attributes of creativity and desire, so that students can recognise themselves in a world of their own design.
The Student as Producer project has provided some of the core funding for DevXS.

DevCSI is a JISC-funded initiative, led by UKOLN at the University of Bath. DevCSI is about helping software developers realise their full potential, by creating the conditions for them to be able to learn, network effectively, share ideas, collaborate and innovate, creating a community of developers in the learning provider sector which is greater than the sum of its parts. The developer benefits. The sector benefits.
