Abstract

Based on pedagogical theory, this article describes how collaborative teaching was used in six first year undergraduate communication disorders classes in order to promote critical and self-reflective thinking. Junior level teaching faculty incorporated KASA standards and project-based learning that focused on diversity and research into cross-course projects over two semesters. The projects required collaborative work among students and among faculty. As a result, collaboration at both the instructor and student level contributed to the learning process and facilitated student construction of knowledge.
