Piloted in the Fall of 2018, the Student Consultants on Teaching at York (SCOTAY) program is designed to offer instructors the opportunity to view their teaching through the eyes of a student. Our work aims to invite and incorporate the student voice into our work in the Teaching Commons, emphasizing and centering the value of the student perspective not just as another checkbox but as an equally valuable and valid source of feedback for instructors. Our interactive poster is designed to provide colleagues with an overview of our processes and procedures, while also grounding this work in the research and experience that guides our approach to providing opportunities for student consulting. Based on our students’ formative reflections, we also offer insight into the many benefits of this program, particularly how it can impact learning for our student consultants, our instructors, and the wider York student population. You can access the interactive poster here.
