Praise for Engaging Students as Partners in Learning and Teaching

“Oh, how I wish I had this book thirty years ago when I was starting to teach! It is the best resource possible for those who understand that teaching and learning is a partnership process, and that faculty-student collaboration can produce the most informed teaching and the most critical learning.”
STEVEN S. VOLK, U.S. Professor of the Year 2011

“If we want to truly transform our teaching and student learning, we must create new kinds of dialogue and practice. This book offers powerful ideas and examples of how student-faculty partnerships can do just that!”
L. DEE FINK, national and international consultant in higher education; author of Creating Significant Learning Experiences

“For those who believe that students can play a much more active role in shaping their own learning, this book has it all—foundational theory and personal voices, practical tips, and lots of great examples. If you’re looking for ways to make students real partners in the educational enterprise, you won’t find better guides than these three authors.”
PAT HUTCHINGS, senior scholar, National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment

“Reading this book gives me great hope for the future of higher education. We often complain that students aren’t engaged enough in our classes and that even the best of them concentrate too much on grades. In this wonderful book, the authors have given us—with plenty of detailed guidance and examples—a revolutionary approach to engaging students in their own education and thereby fostering deep learning. As the final chapter argues, it is the blueprint for a transformative educational movement.”
KEN BAIN, author of What the Best College Teachers Do and What the Best College Students Do

“Engaging Students as Partners in Learning and Teaching addresses a key practice which if widely adopted has the potential to make a radical change to the nature of higher education. This is an important, topical, and above all practical text which should inspire faculty, academic developers, and administrators to devise better ways of engaging students.”
MICK HEALEY, higher education consultant and researcher
