Abstract :

Much research has been done on students' role and position within higher education systems and institutions. Different concepts have been developed and employed to offer a thorough account of students' (shifting) ontological status. While they contribute to our understanding of the complexity of the students' experience, existing concepts might limit attempts to articulate an overarching perspective on students' multifaceted role(s). We contribute to the current debate by proposing the employment of the concept of prosumption-a combination of production and consumption-to develop a broad and nuanced account of the complexity and heterogeneity of students' role(s) and position(s) within higher education.
