Community-Engaged Pedagogy & COVID 19

Friday, June 12, 2:30-3:30 
Held virtually via Zoom

On Friday, June 12, 2:30 -3:30, the CFDE Engaged Learning Program will host a conversation about community-engaged teaching, learning and scholarship in COVID-19 times. We would love to hear about the ways you have already adapted your community engagement activities during the pandemic. We are especially interested in your ideas for the future. Among the topics up for discussion:

  1. Partnership building, nurturing, transforming. What are the current needs of partners? How can students, faculty, and staff work with partners within the public health crisis? 
  2. How does remote learning link to community engagement? How can we be fully engaged but separate? 
  3. How does this global health crisis as well as the national crisis of inequities and protests transform how we think about the connection to the metro Atlanta area? Are there ways to radically re-think what we mean by community engagement? Are students who are involved in remote learning potentially more connected to their own local communities, and how might we think about these connections as part of the extended Emory community?
  4. What are some of the teaching strategies that are most often associated with community engaged pedagogy that could/should be accessed for teaching in any mode? 

Before the conversation or afterward, you may wish to consult major national organizations and networks that support community-campus partnerships and civic engagement (Campus CompactTRUCEN – The Research University Community Engagement NetworkImagining AmericaCommunity-Campus Partnerships for Health, American Association of Colleges & Universities) and currently offer information, webinars, symposia, virtual conferences, and resource pages to support campuses and their community partners during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. Examples:

Join us for an hour-long conversation at 2:30 pm on Friday, June 12 to address the questions above and share ideas.
