Typically faculty teach to students. What happens if we framed the task differently, aiming to teach with students? What new possibilities emerge when students and faculty work together to co-design courses and curricula? In this workshop, we will examine the theory and research underlying the global “Students as Partners” movement and consider specific examples from a variety of institutions and disciplinary contexts. Through reflection, discussion, and imagining, we will explore the challenges, benefits, and opportunities of this work, and participants will leave the session with practical ideas for reimagining their courses in collaboration with their students.

Faculty participants will make progress toward incorporating opportunities for students to contribute to teaching and course design.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these teaching outcomes:

  • Appreciating pedagogy—the art and science of teaching and learning--as a significant higher education endeavor,
  • Identifying factors that influence pedagogical choices,
  • Creating assignments and/or courses that support higher-level learning (deep learning), and
  • Designing and offering courses or curricula that align learning objectives, assessment, and learning activities.
