This article is based on the findings of a three-year study on the outcomes of involving students in the co-creation of knowledge and pedagogical design, 2014, 2015, 2016. It involves three cohorts of second year Sociology students at an Australian University. Data came from recording engagement in class discussion, completion of set reading material, performance in assignments as well as student and lecturer perceptions of overall levels of engagement. Findings demonstrate ways in whichco-creationof knowledge and curriculum design assisted students to engage more deeply in the learning process. Authors posit that co-production of knowledge and shared curriculum development aid in promoting deeper teaching and learning practices.
