Description

With a pilot in 2014, Lingnan University established a faculty-student partnership programme to enhance teaching and learning. With students as consultants and observers, regular classroom observations, consultations, dialogues, discussions and critical reflections were used to provide faculty with insight into how their instruction is seen from the students' perspective. The Lingnan University Library began to participate in the student consultant program, inviting them to observe the library’s information literacy instruction as well as the new student orientation for both 2015 and 2016. Through their detailed and careful observations, valuable feedback, and insightful suggestions, we were able to improve our teaching skills and make classroom presentations better and more relevant to our students.
