Decolonizing Approaches to Inclusive Discussions and Trainings: Lessons from Indigenous Perspectives (Webinar)

November 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Webinar
Free

The future of community engagement work requires a framework that is strengths-based, centers historically underrepresented groups working towards justice on their terms, and includes an analysis of power, positionality, systemic causes of disparities, needs for institutional changes, and critiques of inclusion assumptions. This session will provide decolonizing practice resources, concrete examples, and a chance to reflect on how to apply the practices to your context. Examples include an interactive session focused on how instructors, trainers, and supervisors can create environments that feel relevant, welcoming, and safe to all participants. The session is relevant to instructors, researchers, AmeriCorps Vista trainers, and Campus Compact employees and administrators in both predominantly White institutions as well as contexts with a majority of first-generation college students and large percentages of minority students, employees, and volunteers. (Note: This is run from our parent organization, Compact.org, all information is taken directly from their website.) Campus Compact’s National Webinar series returns for 2019-2020 with more to support and inspire…

Let’s play Votes & Ballots: Creating quality action plans for democratic engagement through gamification (Webinar)

November 21 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Webinar
Free

In this webinar, participants will be introduced to Votes & Ballots, an interactive activity that takes the guesswork out of on-campus democratic engagement. Players are tasked with creating a comprehensive action plan while keeping in mind their institution’s historical voting rates (via NSLVE data), their resources, and the unique challenges faced by student voters. Votes & Ballots has been primarily played among students and staff, but, with an eye toward deepening faculty engagement, a Votes & Ballots: Curricular Edition is in development. Participants will learn about multiple ways through which they can incorporate Votes & Ballots into their work and be able to ask questions/offer feedback. (Note: This is run from our parent organization, Compact.org, all information is taken directly from their website.) Campus Compact’s National Webinar series returns for 2019-2020 with more to support and inspire you. Topics touch on issues of relevance to faculty, staff, students, and their partners in education and community building. Be sure to tune…

A Focus on Faculty: Practical and Research-Informed Strategies for Faculty Development in Community Engagement (Webinar)

December 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Webinar
Free

As S-LCE professionals, many of us are adept in navigating the complexities of working with students, community partners, and broader members of the community. Often, our work with faculty partners and academic departments can be more daunting, in large part due to a dearth of frameworks guiding this work. Building upon the presenters’ recently released edited volume, Reconceptualizing Faculty Development in Service-Learning/Community Engagement, the overarching goal of this session is for participants to analyze and situate their work with faculty partners in an array of best practices, institutions emerging with ideas, resources, and support structures that advance S-LCE faculty development on their campuses. In this webinar, there will be a presentation with built-in opportunities for interaction. We will provide an overview of the book, and then hone in on topics most pertinent to our goals, pulling from our book chapters to offer ideas and perspectives. Through engagement in this webinar, participants will make progress toward: (1) Identifying three research-informed practices…

Building Democratic Skills Through Deliberative Dialogue

In the face of ever-increasing polarization and divisiveness, there is a great need and desire for an effective, accessible, and inclusive tool for diverse people to engage across difference in pursuit of common ground for action on major social issues. A Deliberative Dialogue Forum brings people together in a small gathering to deliberate about challenging public issues. The process is guided by a neutral moderator and a discussion guide that presents multiple approaches to addressing the problem. Deliberative Dialogue provides an effective framework for mutual understanding and a common purpose that allows people to discuss difficult issues, weigh options, and ultimately take action. This workshop will provide an overview of the National Issues Forum deliberative dialogue model and allow participants to engage in a brief practice Forum.
