Student and faculty as pedagogical partners
Keywords:students, partners, pedagogical, partnership, co-create
This reflective case study describes the benefits of a pedagogical partnership between a student and a faculty member of a professional practice child and youth care counsellor program. Reflecting on data collected from their pedagogical partnership experiences, the authors present a case study of the process they used and draw data from their reflective journals. This case study aims to provide insight into a pedagogical partnership through reflective evaluation of the method used, key learnings, results, and unintended results resulting in a significant positive outcome.
