We are excited that the awarding of a PCLA Opportunity Grant will allow us to offer two workshops and a conference on student-faculty pedagogical partnerships. Our goal is to afford PCLA institutions the opportunity to gain exposure to pedagogical partnership as a growing phenomenon and to develop their own partnership pilots or initiatives.
PCLA Pedagogic Partnership Conference
May 25-26th 2017 I Lafayette College
Please join us for the PCLA Pedagogical Partnership Conference, which will be held at Lafayette College on May 25-26, 2017. This conference is intended to be space for faculty, staff, and students who belong to the Pennsylvania Consortium for the Liberal Arts (PCLA), as well as colleagues from other institutions engaged in partnership work, to share and workshop their partnership initiatives related to teaching and learning in higher education.

Fall Partnership Workshop (now over)
November 5th I 9am-12pm I Bryn Mawr College
Our November workshop allowed teams to hear from experienced students and faculty from PCLA institutions that are currently supporting student-faculty partnership initiatives (Bryn Mawr, Haverford, Lafayette, and Ursinus), as well as to develop and receive feedback on partnership initiatives for their campuses. Participating teams for this workshop came from Bryn Mawr & Haverford, Gettysburg, Juniata, Lafayette, Muhlenberg, Swarthmore, and Ursinus, and had interests ranging from partnership toward single-course redesigns to partnership toward a campus-wide program on digital pedagogy. From 9am-12pm, teams worked inter-institutionally to dream, learn, brainstorm, and develop partnership initiatives appropriate to their home context and needs. Teams left committed to implementing some aspect of the initiative they developed and ready to share their learning with others at their home institutions.
Handouts from the event have been compiled and are available to you here.
