The student-faculty pedagogical partnership program aims to introduce new opportunities for students and faculty to work in partnership on pedagogical initiatives, while also supporting existing partnerships across LUMS. The goal is to support teaching, learning, and research excellence with students as collaborators and active contributors. The programme provides compensation for students to work as full members of project teams with faculty and/or staff.
This partnership allows the students to collaborate with the faculty and give direct insight into students’ perspectives and experience as learners to help inform the design/delivery of their courses.
Student Partner Role
Students will be paired with instructors to work collaboratively on:
Partners can take a range of approaches to their collaboration, starting with a focus on classroom practice and expanding to consider curriculum, assessment, and other pedagogy dimensions.
Students and faculty/staff are involved in co-creating and holding shared responsibility for the intellectual design and development of a pedagogical research project. From the beginning stages of project development to disseminating results, these collaborative pedagogical projects give students opportunities to experience inquiry and research from a fully informed perspective and with mentorship from experienced researchers.
Pedagogical research partnership has two streams:
1. Pedagogical Interactions
Studies that examine teaching and learning at the classroom level could include interactions between teachers and students, students and students, classroom dynamics, teachers’ perspectives, learners’ perspectives, and so on.
2. Developing and Implementing Innovations at the Course Level
Studies that aim to investigate a new innovative practice or intervention implemented in a course.
