RSVP Here for "Toward Pedagogical Partnerships"

In this interactive session, Dr. Alison Cook-Sather will present both student and scholar visions of the international pedagogical partnership movement, share a working definition and principles of pedagogical partnership, and describe the partnership program she has facilitated for nearly two decades and the outcomes faculty and student participants have experienced. She will present as well as conceptual framework she developed with faculty and student co-authors for how pedagogical partnership can redress the epistemic, affective, and ontological harms many equity-seeking students experience in higher education. Finally, Dr. Cook-Sather will invite consideration of thresholds to partnership work and what might inspire moving past those.

Open to: All Stanford staff, instructors, faculty, and students interested in pedagogical partnerships and collaborations involving students with those in other roles with the University. Please email with questions.
