Rethinking Outcomes: Mutual Benefit in Community Engaged Teaching

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
When institutions take on work in the community, the outcomes should be mutually beneficial to both the communities and academic partners. How we measure success depends on how we enter the collaboration, and what expectations we’re hoping to have as the end deliverable. In this workshop, presenters from University of Hawai’i and Washington University in St. Louis will briefly present two different approaches to collaborative community projects in institutions of higher education, the challenges to these approaches, and the outcomes being pursued. The bulk of the time will be spent on a facilitated discussion engaging participants in conversation about how to rethink and scaffold initiatives for outcomes that are truly mutually beneficial.

*This is an "Excuse our Dust" Session!*
Excuse our Dust is  a series of interactive workshops focused on in-process projects, from a women-led, San Francisco-based group working to support diversity in the field of public interest design to an East Baltimore community developing cooperative ownership models. Participating groups are interested in feedback, so come with questions and ideas.
