Co-pedagogy: Teaching together for successful student learning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter discusses the impact that the collaborations between educators have on student learning. In first year units the number and the diversity of such collaborations is often great. They include team-taught units, units delivered across geography’s sub-disciplines and with other disciplines, and units taught with Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) and faculty who have recently been appointed. These collaborations are not generally discussed in geography or education literature. This chapter forefronts these education collaborations. It proposes the idea of co-pedagogy as a sensitising concept which calls attention to the impact they have on student learning. The chapter examines different models of teaching together, to highlight their challenges and opportunities.
