Advancing Inclusive Teaching: The Power of Student Partnership in SoTL

Plenary Workshop: Friday, October 8, 12:45 - 2:00 pm EST

Workshop Co-Facilitator: Monica Rizk, Student, Lafayette College

Partnering with students can be a powerful way to build more inclusive learning environments. During this plenary workshop, participants will learn a variety of small- to large-scale approaches for partnering with undergraduate or graduate students on SoTL projects that investigate and advance inclusive teaching efforts. Participants will have time to reflect and consider which approaches are most appropriate for their own contexts. Specific examples will be embedded throughout the workshop, as well as potential avenues for funding and publishing such work.
