Cover of Pedagogical Partnerships book

Pedagogical Partnerships: A How-To Guide for Faculty, Students, and Academic Developers in Higher Education” by Alison Cook-Sather, Melanie Bahti and Anita Ntem, and its accompanying resources provide step-by-step guidance to support the conceptualization, development, launch, and sustainability of pedagogical partnership programs in the classroom and curriculum. This definitive guide is written for faculty, students, and academic developers who are looking to use pedagogical partnerships to increase engaged learning, create more equitable and inclusive educational experiences, and reframe the traditionally hierarchical structure of teacher-student relationships.

Filled with practical advice, Pedagogical Partnerships provides extensive materials so that readers don’t have to reinvent the wheel, but rather can adapt time-tested strategies and techniques to their own unique contexts and goals.

The book is available to read and download on the Center for Engaged Learning website.

The Center for Engaged Learning (CEL) will host two spring reading groups on student-faculty partnerships in teaching and learning, facilitated by Sophia Abbot, CEL Graduate Apprentice. The reading groups are scheduled in conjunction with the release of two books in CEL’s Open Access Book Series.

Interested faculty, staff, and students are invited to join us to discuss the just released Pedagogical Partnerships: A How-To Guide and/or the forthcoming edited collection The Power of Partnership: Students, Staff, and Faculty Revolutionizing Higher Education. These group conversations will be a space to learn about and reflect on this new practice in higher education. Please save the following dates if you wish to join the conversations:
