Council Chambers, Gilmour Hall 111

Research demonstrates the importance of student engagement in learning. Faculty and colleges encourage that in diverse ways, including everything from undergraduate research to writing-intensive and community-based courses. What happens when we go further, inviting students to join us in pedagogical planning and in research into how undergraduates learn? This interactive session will explore practical questions about and approaches to student-faculty partnerships in teaching and learning.
