Dr. Cook-Sather’s research focuses on how differently positioned participants in education can work together toward deeper learning. She is also one of the leading scholars on student voice work, particularly student voice in teacher education and professional development. Alison has published over 70 articles and book chapters and five books, including Engaging Students as Partners in Learning and Teaching: A Guide for Faculty.
She will share her important work on how student-faculty and student-staff pedagogical partnerships can support both student and faculty learning. These partnerships can be a forum for designing and redesigning classroom learning where students and faculty partners bring their different perspectives to bear on how to develop engaging, equitable, and inclusive learning opportunities for students.
