Building Student Dispositions for Community Engaged Learning

May 7, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This webinar introduces dispositions as a framework for students’ community-engaged learning. Dispositions are filters made up of values, beliefs, cultural backgrounds, and prior experiences that shape how we take in information and make sense of it. Too often, student orientation to community-engaged learning is a checklist of signing waiver forms, logging volunteer hours, and meeting minimum requirements. While logistics matter, the heart of preparation for engaging with community is bringing and developing a set of dispositions that foster positive cognitive and affective growth. While many dispositions can contribute to such growth, focusing on a small set of strategic dispositions provides a robust frame for making sense of community-engaged learning experiences. The webinar is structured around six dispositions: open-mindedness, humility, appreciation of community cultural wealth, intellectual curiosity, empathy, and commitment. These dispositions are particularly vital for community engaged learning designed to promote critical thinking and social justice. David Donahue Star Plaxton-Moore

The Power of a Plan: How a Civic Action Plan can Create Significant Impact

April 28, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Why should your institution create a Civic Action Plan? How do you move your plan from words to action? Creating a Civic Action Plan has been transformational for SUNY Buffalo State College and the University of Northern Iowa (UNI). The plan itself and the process of developing the plan has led to deep and broad conversations and impacts about important issues of reciprocity in community engagement, faculty and staff recognition for this work, and institutional structure and effectiveness. This webinar will provide inspiration and honest feedback from colleagues at Buffalo State and UNI about the initial reasons for creating a civic action plan, the process of creating the plan, the challenges encountered, and the unforeseen tremendous impact the plan has already had at both institutions. We will answer your questions about the process, and encourage you to set up a framework for success through a civic action planning process. Staff from Campus Compact of New York and Pennsylvania will provide…
