Learning From Each Other: Involving Students in Centers for Teaching and Learning


Student involvement in centers for teaching and learning (CTLs) is often an overlooked avenue of faculty development. While several formalized programs for student involvement exist at other universities, the authors explore informal and easily implemented opportunities to work with students that can provide a viable starting point for centers of all kinds. They discuss the roles that students can play as presenters, panelists, audience members, marketers, and colleagues, and the valuable growth that involvement can foster for students and faculty alike as they engage in dialogue and reflection about teaching and learning.
