Students may apply to participate in the following TLI opportunities:
1. Student Consultant to a faculty member through a partnership based in a faculty pedagogy seminar or through a stand-alone Students as Learners and Teachers (SaLT) partnership
All applications and inquires regarding the SaLT program should be directed to Alison Cook-Sather.
All applications and inquiries regarding reciprocal teaching and learning partnerships and the Time Bank should be directed to Jessica Hollinger Vinson.
This opportunity is supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Teaching and Learning Institute. Students who assume the role of consultant work up to 7 hours per week in the paid role of pedagogical partner to a faculty member. Through this partnership you analyze, affirm, and revise classroom practice in the context of one of your faculty partner’s courses with the goal of maximizing engagement and learning for all involved.
A student who chooses to take on the responsibility of a Student Consultant commits to:
Through the Empowering Learners Partnership program, you partner with a staff or faculty member in a unique, reciprocal relationship through which you take turns teaching and learning a skill or interest. Skills exchanged have included cooking, computer use, crafts, literacy development, language instruction, music appreciation, martial arts, religious studies, and home maintenance.
You should expect to dedicate two to four hours a week to your partnership and program meetings.
Students from both Haverford College and Bryn Mawr College (including McBride, post-bac, and graduate students) are encouraged to apply if interested in participating.
The student application can be found on the student employment website. A Director’s Grant from the Mellon Foundation for the 2006-7 academic year supported an hourly wage for students, now supported by the College. Students may opt to use their program participation as fieldwork in selected Education classes instead of a paid position.
