Partners in a Learning Organization: A Student-Focused Model of Professional Development
Scott, Shelleyann; Dixon, Kathryn
Educational Forum, v73 n3 p240-255 2009
This research report presents a student-focused model aimed at involving students, academics, and administrators in improving and enhancing learning and teaching at a university business school. The "partners in learning" model involves using student feedback to develop curriculum, teaching, and assessment; systematic, in-context professional development; and curriculum review. This longitudinal study reports that without strong educational leadership and organizational commitment, positive change is slow in showing results. The lessons learned are included for university professional developers. (Contains 2 figures and 2 tables.)
