Students as Co-inquirers: A Requisite Threshold Concept in Educational Development?The Journal of Faculty Development (2012)
For over a decade, Western Washington University has sponsored the Teaching-Learning Academy, bringing students, faculty, staff, and community members together as co-inquirers into overarching questions about teaching and learning. In this safe space, participants frame one research question of interest each year; sharing their perspectives and lived experiences to create understandings about education that frequently rise to the level of threshold concepts. In this article we explore some of the results of the co-inquiry process, illustrating the important contributions students make to answering the shared questions and to translating the TLA findings into an enhanced institutional learning environment for everyone.
