A. Cook-Sather, Bryn Mawr College

Structures of and practices in higher education have long caused harm to students underrepresented at our institutions. A new book Promoting Equity and Justice through Pedagogical Partnership provides a framework for understanding the epistemic, affective, and ontological harms underrepresented and equity-seeking students experience.

This book group, led by co-author Alison Cook-Sather, will devote four sessions to working through the seven chapters of the book and building on participant responses to questions included in the book’s resources. The goal is to draw on the book’s concrete examples as well as participant responses to engage in dialogue, reflection, and planning for action in relation to the ways student-faculty pedagogical partnership can contribute to creating more equitable education.
