Webinar: 'Building Student Dispositions for Community-Engaged Learning' - May 7

Please join the Civic and Community Engagement Office for a free webinar, "Building Student Dispositions for Community-Engaged Learning," on Thursday, May 7, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. in South Wing 137.

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 framework for making sense of community-engaged learning experiences.

Register for the free webinar by e-mailing the Civic and Community Engagement Office or calling 878-3919.
