Students as Co-Creators of Teaching Approaches, Course Design, and Curricula: Implications for Academic Developers
Bovill, Catherine; Cook-Sather, Alison; Felten, Peter
International Journal for Academic Development, v16 n2 p133-145 2011
Within higher education, students' voices are frequently overlooked in the design of teaching approaches, courses and curricula. In this paper we outline the theoretical background to arguments for including students as partners in pedagogical planning processes. We present examples where students have worked collaboratively in design processes, along with the beneficial outcomes of these examples. Finally, we focus on some of the implications and opportunities for academic developers of proposing collaborative approaches to pedagogical planning.
