Help your students to have a positive impact on their community while teaching them the value of being an engaged citizen. Applications are now open for (Re)Design Your Course for Civic Engagement, a cohort-based, multiweek experience from the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) and the Center for Civic Engagement.
The program, offered as a part of CTLT’s Summer Institute, is open to full-time tenured, tenure-track, and nontenure-track instructors, as well as staff with instructional responsibilities. Applications must be received by 11:50 p.m. Sunday, April 10, 2022.
Course instructors selected to participate in this cohort will spend the equivalent of four days spread through May integrating civic engagement into a course they have taught and will teach again in the near future. This will include face-to-face and asynchronous work. Participants must be present for all sessions.
The redesign process will allow faculty to explore ways to promote active learning experiences and assessment through which students can gain an awareness and understanding of civic engagement as a lifelong responsibility.
This redesign opportunity can also be used to develop a course that could be included in the interdisciplinary collection of available civic engagement and responsibility minor electives.
A $1,000 stipend is available to eligible participants who complete the program. Eight course instructors, from any discipline, will be selected for the 2022 cohort.
