Photographic exhibition: Students who bounce back



Research co-creation

‘Students who bounce back’ is a collaborative project involving BU researchers and students in co-production of data collection, analysis and dissemination.

Students were given a camera to take a picture each day for a month. Their goal was to capture scenece that would help the researchers to understand their experiences as students and carers at BU and how caring impacted on their learning experiences. They were given the freedom to portray anything they felt was relevant to the project.

In addition to this, the students met with the research team for one-to-one interviews, helped the team to better understand how caring and studying interplay in students’ lives.

The final collaboration between students and researchers came through an exhibition. Images displayed were selected from a pool of over 300 images produced by the students and captions came from their interviews. The students were given final say over which images and words were used to reflect their experiences.
