The Transformative Potential of Faculty-Student Collaboration: A Case Study From the Students as Partners (SaP) Program

December 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This event is part of the CTLT Winter Institute, taking place from December 12-15, 2022.

In this workshop, a Students as Partners (SaP) team will present their work in collaboratively redesigning a 3rd year Arts course (MES 300). The team will subsequently lead an open discussion on how to co-create and administer a successful SaP course redesign project, focusing on the opportunities and challenges inherent to SaP projects, lessons learned, the ways in which SaP approaches can improve student engagement, and the potential of SaP work to transform academic work, life and relationships for faculty and students. Ultimately, the team will make a case for expanding opportunities for SaP work at UBC, especially as pertains to course creation and revision.

You can attend this workshop if:

  • You are faculty interested in creating and/or administering an SaP project
  • You are a student interested in creating and/or contributing to SaP work at UBC
  • You wish to learn how SaP and faculty-student collaborations more generally can transform academic work and life at UBC

Facilitators:

  • Pheroze Unwalla, Assisitant Professor of Teaching, Department of History
  • Yasmina Seifeddine
  • Sophie Roth
  • Magdalen Hamilton

This event will be hosted on Zoom.
