Community-Engaged Pedagogy Workshop: Community Partner Perspectives
The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Center for Community Learning are pleased to announce our second community-engaged pedagogy workshop. Join us for a lunchtime discussion with some of our long-standing community partners on November 21 from 12-1:15pm in Powell 186.
Successful community-engaged courses are built on the foundation of strong community partnerships. Faculty learn about the partner organization’s work, its resources and its needs, and then work with community partners to identify appropriate student work which both meets an organizational need and creates authentic opportunities for engaging course content. This session’s panel looks at this dynamic from the community partner’s perspective, and offers faculty the benefit of multiple perspectives from experienced community partners. Lunch will be provided.
