SaLT was piloted in 2006 by five faculty-student pairs who focused on making the faculty members' classrooms as inclusive and responsive to a diversity of students as they could be. (Read recommendations from that pilot here.)
The one-on-one, semester-long collaborations developed during the pilot phase of the program became the basic model for all partnerships through SaLT, which is now one of the longest-standing pedagogical partnership programs in the world. Most partnerships are between students and faculty, but other members of the community, such as librarians, have also partnered with students to explore and refine approaches to teaching and learning.
