Students as…Co-researchers? Consultants? Course co-designers? Change agents? … impossible!
Though sharing power and control is often uncomfortable for both students and faculty, increased student and faculty engagement, deeper learning, and increased rigor are worth the struggle according to Peter Felten, Executive Director of the Center for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching at Elon University in North Carolina, an internationally recognized expert on transformative teaching. Dr. Felten will help you understand the benefits of student-faculty partnerships and show you how you can start to develop partnerships with your students—in course design, by responding to a course as it unfolds, in assessment, and as partners in inquiry into to teaching and learning (SoTL). Felten’s interactive morning workshop will be followed after lunch by short presentations from faculty who have formed student-faculty partnerships in their teaching and a student-faculty panel. By the end of the day you will have concrete strategies backed by evidence-based rationales for building transformational partnerships with your own students.
