Webinar: Civic Prompts in the Major: Disciplinary Knowledge, Democratic Culture, and the Public Good

October 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

AAC&U is pleased to announce the latest in a series of webinars that highlight the work being done at colleges and universities to address challenges and identify best practices for enhancing the teaching and learning experience and demonstrating the value of liberal education for work, life, and global citizenship. Most students have substantial exposure to civic knowledge, values, skills, and hands-on learning through general education, but the road to responsible democratic engagement too often disappears in a student’s specialized field of study. Three campus practitioners leading efforts to build strong civic learning pathways for departmental majors will describe what worked best to engage colleagues about disciplinary-driven questions of social responsibility. They will also share how they are creating more intentional designs focused on the public good in courses scaffolded across requirements for their majors. Designed primarily for faculty, departmental chairs, and academic administrators, this webinar is part of AAC&U’s larger project on incorporating civic learning in the major—Civic Prompts.

Placed-Based Community Engagement in Higher Education

January 24, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Part of the 2018-19 Campus Compact Webinar Series Widely known through the work of the Harlem Children’s Zone and the federal government’s Promise and Choice Neighborhood programs, geographically specific community engagement initiatives have the potential to positively address the challenges of inequity and injustice within our communities.

Integrating Civic Outcomes Across a Major or Program: Curriculum design and mapping for civic learning

February 19, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Part of the 2018-19 Campus Compact Webinar Series In this webinar attendees will focus on identifying, articulating, and mapping civic learning and developmental outcomes (civic identity, civic-mindedness, civic agency, civic literacy, intercultural competency, etc.) for their program of study or major. A curriculum map is a tool to assure the content of a program of study or major is being presented and assessed, all content is linked to learning goals (e.g. institutional, accreditor), and that content is sufficient to reach learning and developmental goals. A curriculum mapping exercise can show gaps in learning, overlaps in content, and indicate where weaknesses or opportunities can and should be addressed.
