The paper presents the results of the Workshop for Quality Assurance, organized by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE) since 2014. The Workshop is devoted to the students that are members of the Joint docents - students committees and consists of several educational activities ranging from lessons to practical exercises. The Workshop is based on a principle, established in the Document for Quality Assurance of the education of UNIMORE, that commits the University «to act deliberately so that students are involved, individually and collectively, as partners in quality assurance and in strengthening their educational experience». The paper considers some problematic aspects that gradually emerged in the course of the implementation of the Workshop and develops some reflections on an experience which seems to be unique on the national scene.
