Additional Course Details: 

Public Engagement in Communities - Using an Equity Lens as a Reflective Practitioner – This online course introduces frameworks and established practices effective for increasing social equity and fostering inclusive participation in decisions and actions that impact people’s lives. Team taught by practitioners and scholars in equity and public engagement, we ground this course in our professional and personally lived experiences from our work in schools, towns, state and regional initiatives. We hope you will bring your stories too! As a member of the class, you will engage in discussions about your identities, biases, and power within your work, learning, and home communities. You will also learn about and reflect upon facilitation strategies for guiding challenging conversations, addressing conflict, and building community coalitions across difference. 

This course has asynchonous and synchronous parts. We will gather together online for large and small group discussions on the following days:

  • 5:30 to 7:30pm, Thursday, January 7th, 2021 
  • 5:30 to 7:30pm, Thursday, January 14th, 2021 
  • 5:30 to 7:30pm, Thursday, January 21, 2021

We look forward to spending time with you and connecting.
