Students as Partners in Course Re-Design: Reflections from Students, Faculty and Staff Partners on Learning through Partnership

June 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

This event is part of the CTLT Spring Institute, taking place from June 3–6, 2024.

In 2021, UBC Vancouver made a commitment to position students as collaborators in the academic mission of the university through the Students as Partners (SaP) Initiative. The Initiative compensates undergraduate students working with faculty in the redesign and scholarly evaluation of undergraduate courses, while also providing dedicated support from an educational developer.

In this panel session, which will highlight the voices of students, faculty, and staff who have been involved in funded UBC SaP course re-design projects, we will explore the individual and collective learning that has occurred through the process of working in partnership. Specifically, panelists will reflect on the concept of partnership, where students, faculty, and staff have “the opportunity to contribute equally, although not necessarily in the same ways, to curricular or pedagogical conceptualization, decision-making, implementation, investigation, or analysis” (Cook-Sather et al., 2014, pp. 6-7). Through this panel, participants will explore the impact of the partnerships on transforming teaching, curricular practices, student learning and educational development.

  • Roselynn Verwoord, Strategist: Students as Partners
