Engaging Students as Partners in Teaching and Learning: A High Impact Practice for All?

Typically we teach to students. What happens if we approach the task differently, aiming to teach with students?

Emerging research suggests that engaging students as partners in teaching and learning has the potential to enhance, and perhaps even transform, student learning - and also faculty teaching. This interactive keynote will explore practical strategies from diverse disciplines for creating and sustaining student-faculty partnerships in teaching and learning.
