Project Spotlight

Co-create UVA

The purpose of the proposed program is to apply UVa’s culture of student self-governance to curricular
matters through student-faculty partnerships and collaboration. To that end, ReinventED Lab
(reinventedlab.org), a nationally supported, student-driven CIO for creative problem-solving in education
proposes to launch a comprehensive pilot program for “Co-create UVA” (cocreateuva.com). Co-create UVA
provides opportunities for students to directly collaborate with faculty to enhance teaching and learning. We
firmly believe that the future of education innovation will depend on an engaged dialogue between students
and teachers, and Co-create UVA offers new mechanisms for both stakeholder groups to contribute to
transformative learning experiences that, in turn, benefit both parties. Co-create UVA aims to transform UVa’s
educational culture and pioneer a national model for students and faculty reinventing higher education
together.
