Kirkwood Community College, 6301 Kirkwood Blvd. SW
Cedar Rapids, IA 52404 United States

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. Yet, civic learning has multiple benefits. It is a high-impact pedagogy that, when done well, supports greater inclusion and success for all students. In this workshop, we will share a variety of tools, frames, and paths for effectively integrating civic learning into courses across disciplines. This will include ideas for political discussions, civic dialogue, civic engagement, community engagement, and more. The session will follow the course design process and link outcomes, activities, and assessment tools that meet a variety of needs and goals. Attendees will have the opportunity to brainstorm and develop a syllabus and/or course activities for the infusion of civic learning. 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,…
