Co-Creating Equitable Teaching and Learning invites readers to help forge a more inclusive and accessible college education by incorporating student voices via pedagogical partnerships.


To move the needle in higher education towards more equitable learning environments, we need to use strategies that demonstrate impact. Co-Creating Equitable Teaching and Learning highlights the critical importance of integrating student voices, a powerful approach that can lead to transformation at the course through the institutional level. — Tracie Marcella Addy, Associate Dean of Teaching & Learning, Lafayette College

This important book reimagines equitable teaching in higher education. Cook-Sather uses deep research and personal stories to show that students can—and should—be positioned as partners with faculty, staff, and administrators in co-constructing inclusive teaching and learning at the course, program, and institutional levels. As Cook-Sather demonstrates, student voice is essential to co-creating equity and justice in higher education. — Peter Felten, Center for Engaged Learning, Elon University, and co-author of Relationship-Rich Education: How Human Connections Drive Success in College

Cook-Sather’s research has been both radically innovative and universally accessible. This new work offers a compelling argument for engaging practices of co-creation to implement a practice of equity and justice in higher education. It is essential reading for instructors, institutional leaders, and staff, as well as students. — Steven S. Volk, Co-director, Consortium for Teaching and Learning, Great Lakes Colleges Association

Alison forefronts the student voice and offers compelling arguments to educators to invite students as teaching and learning design partners. More importantly, she centers her arguments on equity and justice, while reflecting on the process and products of co-creating partnerships. This book is a must-read for educators ready for the next big step in their teaching and curriculum design. — Carol A. Hurney, Associate Provost, Faculty Development & Diversity, Colby College
