When Students Become Leaders: Building Confidence & Courage in the Classroom
In this session we will explore how the partnerships created through a collaborative teaching model supports students in building a sense of confidence that translates into enhancing their lives beyond academia. We will first analyze what students perceive confidence to be within the context of their experiences. From there, we will look at student interviews and reflections regarding the development of their confidence and courage and identify how it has impacted their lives outside of the classroom. We will discuss and demonstrate several aspects of the teaching model, and participants will role-play ways of working with students to enhance student presentations, feedback, and reflection. Finally, we will share outcomes from the teaching methodology and implementation issues.
