Student Programming

Parallel Play at the CEP

Parallel play typically describes young children playing next to each other without the need for interaction. The CEP is putting our own spin on it by introducing Parallel Play with Pals! These will be hosted weekly by your CEP pals with corresponding playlists ranging from peaceful play to artist-based play like Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers, Mitski and more. Parallel Play with Pals is the perfect atmosphere for getting your work done while sharing comfortable silence or a curated ambience with other students.


At the Center for Engaged Pedagogy, we believe that teaching and learning is a transformative process. Both students and teachers engage in meaningful teaching and learning practices that foster mutual growth and facilitate the collaborative cultivation of knowledge. We are committed to supporting and striving towards inclusive and innovative pedagogical practices that acknowledge diverse ways of knowing, forms of expertise, and academic pathways.
