Student/Faculty Dialogue Model.
Bowser, Beth; Barrineau, Nancy
To encourage dialogue between student teachers and college faculty, the Carolina Colloquy for University Teaching, an organization of the 16 public universities in the University of North Carolina (UNC) system, designed a 1-day, systemwide conference on building bridges (11th, Winston-Salem, NC, March 19, 1999). The goals were to provide an opportunity for students and faculty to talk with and listen to each other about teaching and learning and to provide a model which could be adapted for local campus use. Faculty members and students were required to register in pairs and were requested to be as diverse as possible. The day's dialogue focused on perceptions and expectations which students and faculty had about each other. Participants gave the conference very high ratings. The paper presents the story of one UNC campus' adaptation of the conference model for its own use. This effort involved 29 student/faculty pairs who met over the course of a day to discuss teaching and learning. The workshop received high ratings. Attached are: the Carolina Colloquy for University Teaching conference schedule, suggestions for implementing student/faculty dialogue, and a bibliography. (Contains an annotated bibliography with 40 print and Web site references.) (SM)
