In addition to semester-long student-faculty partnerships, the Pedagogical Partnership Program (P3) allows faculty to engage in briefer, more targeted partnerships with students by working with a P3 Student Ambassador. Student Ambassadors provide faculty with just-in-time feedback regarding pedagogy as tailored to the faculty’s specific needs. For example, a Student Ambassador can:

  • Review syllabi for tone, clarity, and utility for students
  • Review course policies for inclusion, equity, and transparency 
  • Observe a class session and offer feedback on instructor facilitation, content organization, classroom dynamics, student engagement/participation, etc.
  • Meet for a consultation on various teaching challenges

Kayla Elliott is serving as Student Ambassador in Fall 2022. 

Kayla is a rising senior at Tufts University studying Child Studies/Human Development and Education. Kayla is originally from Brooklyn, New York and some of her hobbies include binge watching Grey's Anatomy and trying new restaurants. At Tufts, she has tutored for the Leonard Carmichael Society, served as the co-manager for YouCanToo, and is currently a Student Ambassador for the Pedagogical Partnership Program. She's worked with the Pedagogical Partnership Program since the Fall of 2020. She’s worked with professors in the following departments: Department of Religion, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and International Relations. Partaking in these roles has allowed her to actively make her institution an anti-racist institution through creating equitable learning environment for students who may be from marginalized or underrepresented communities. In the near future, she intends on continuing equity work surrounding policy reform in education.
