Tracie Addy, director of the Center for the Integration of Teaching, Learning, and Service at Lafayette CollegeTracie Addy, associate dean of teaching and learning and director of the Center for the Integration of Teaching, Learning, and Service, discussed the importance of including students in institutional planning efforts in an article she cowrote for University Business.

Addy and her coauthors (Alison Cook-Sather, the Mary Katherine Woodworth Professor of Education and director of the Teaching and Learning Institute at Bryn Mawr College, and Peter Felten, the executive director of the Center for Engaged Learning at Elon University) wrote how remote learning disproportionally negatively impacts students from underserved groups and how developing sustained dialogue and meaningful relationships with students can benefit both the students and the institution.

We are in this work for students, and to design effective learning environments at this unprecedented interaction between pandemic and protest against anti-Black racism, we need to partner with students to create newly functional and just educational practices,” they wrote.
