Engaging students as partners (SaP) is an approach to fostering meaningful learner-teacher pedagogical relationships in higher education. Over the last decade, along with a growing attention on this topic in global higher education sectors, the dialogue around SaP has emerged in Asian universities. However, scholars have raised questions about the cultural applicability of SaP concept in practices. In this talk, by taking these questions and challenges as important concerns and grounding on the literature, I will share insights into how to culturally engage students as partners in university teaching and learning in Asia.
