Exploring ways to decolonize service learning and other forms of civic engagement will be the focus of the workshop “Designing Civic Engagement Assignments Using an EDI Lens” from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Friday, April 15, via Zoom.
The event, co-sponsored by the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee for the Department of English and the ISU Center for Civic Engagement, is part of the Spring Workshop Series.
Director of the Center for Civic Engagement Katy Strzepek and Assistant Director Harriett Steinbach will be guest speakers for the workshop, which will explore course design and the co-creation of knowledge that includes anti-racist and equitable community-engaged work.
Prior to the workshop, those interested in participating can review the Social Change Wheel and the articles “Service Learning as a Pedagogy of Whiteness” and “Suspending Damage: A Letter to Communities,” which will be discussed.
