High Impact Civic Learning Pedagogy

May 15 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Cedar Rapids

Faculty are in a unique position to prepare students for their role in our democracy and as community leaders, but this outcome is often lost to more pressing academic and workforce needs.

They will leave with new ideas and fresh perspectives for effective strategies that enhance outcomes for all without increasing faculty workload. When: Friday, May 15,…
