Spring Workshop: Pedagogical Partnerships
In this two-day workshop, Dr. Alison Cook-Sather will present on and facilitate discussion of pedagogical partnership as it can inform and support inclusive instruction. Pedagogical partnership is “a collaborative, reciprocal process” through which teacher and student partners “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, Bovill, & Felten, 2014, pp. 6-7).
Dr. Cook-Sather is an international expert in pedagogical partnerships, has contributed over 100 articles and book chapters and 8 books to the growing body of scholarship on this topic, and has spoken and/or consulted at over 70 institutions on six continents about partnership work. We are inviting teams comprised of a teacher educator and a student partner to take part in the workshop and learn how to implement pedagogical partnership to enhance practice. On day 1, Dr. Cook-Sather will share the why and what of pedagogical partnerships, detail research consisting of both student and teacher partner voices documenting the success of partnership, and describe how partnership informs inclusive instruction and furthers equity and a sense of belonging. Day 2 will include interactive exploration of concepts in pedagogical partnerships and partnership approaches you might develop within and beyond your courses.
