Hear from Alice Lesnick about Global Bryn Mawr

"I think of education as a process of becoming increasingly less isolated — by your own background, experiences, and biases — and becoming more capable of connection."

Endorsements for Cook-Sather and Wilson's book

What happens in the brave spaces of pedagogical partnership? This collection includes ten chapters in which faculty-student teams, tell their own stories of partnership in various contexts in Aotearoa New Zealand, Canada, England, Hong Kong, Israel, Malaysia, Pakistan, and regions of the United States. Each story reveals how the brave spaces of student-faculty partnership foster mindsets and practices that support co-creation of learning and teaching experiences that strive to be equitable, engaging, and empowering.

“This volume makes a vital contribution to the literature on student-faculty partnership ...The student and faculty contributors write with honesty and insight, clearly reflecting the courage, confidence, and capacity highlighted by Cook-Sather and Wilson in their framing chapters, and sharing experiences and advice that will be of interest to new and experienced partnership practitioners alike.”—Elizabeth Marquis, McMaster University

“The book highlights the powerful transformations that are possible when students and faculty are open to the unfamiliar, and approach learning and teaching as a shared endeavor.”—Catherine Bovill, the University of Edinburgh
