Students as Partners at ISSOTL 2018

by Sophia Abbot and Ketevan Kupatadze

Students as Partners (SaP) had a major presence at the 2018 International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL) conference in Bergen, Norway, this past October. Twenty of the 247 conference sessions, and two of the six pre-conference workshops were either focused on SaP work or drew on SaP literature. Not only were numerous panels organized around the topic, but our colleagues from diverse institutions were intrigued by this relatively new pedagogy and attended the presentations in the hopes of learning about SaP and applying it to their teaching in the future. We (Ketevan and Sophia) attended the conference and were struck by the prominent place SaP held within the larger SoTL conversations. We saw some of the core topics of SaP sessions this year pushing SoTL in important directions.

Invitation: Field a Question for Professor Elizabeth Minnich

Elizabeth MinnichIf you were at ISSOTL-Bergen this October, you would have heard Professor Elizabeth Minnich’s keynote lecture. You would also know that we did not get a chance to engage her in Q&A.

Good news! Prof Minnich has agreed to do a written Q&A on a short list of questions, and we plan for this to be featured as a Dialogue piece in a September 2019 issue of TLI.
