Placed-Based Community Engagement in Higher Education 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.

Webinar: Curriculum design and mapping for civic learning

February 19, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Zoom web conference,
Iowa Campus Compact Webinar

Integrating Civic Outcomes Across a Major or Program: Curriculum design and mapping for civic learning 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. Anne Weiss has over seven years of experience in leading collaborative assessment, evaluation, and inquiry projects focused on resolving complex problems within higher education institutions- especially as it relates to civic or community engagement. In the role of Director of Assessment with Campus Compact of Indiana, Weiss…
