Partnerships in Learning: A Collaborative Project between Higher Education Students and Elementary School Students
Hunter, Peggi E.; Botchwey, Nisha D.
Innovative Higher Education, v42 n1 p77-90 Feb 2017
Higher education and K-12 school partnerships are typically designed with an end-goal that serves the instructional needs of one group over the other. For this project, a university professor and elementary school instructor used problem-based and project-based learning strategies to design a curriculum that served the academic needs of both groups of students. Undergraduate students in an urban planning course partnered with elementary students from a local school to work on an interdependent civic engagement project. The partnership provided innovative, twenty-first teaching for both groups of students while also reinforcing public service.
