Educating for Democracy: Making Civic Learning Visible in Disciplines
Civic Learning is a form of integrative learning that prepares students for lives of informed and engaged participation in their communities and in society at large as residents, professionals and future scholars. Intentional design of civic learning experiences creates powerful learning environments in which students, as well as partners and faculty/staff, can wrestle with issues of public significance. Through action and critical reflection on these experiences, learners further their civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions. Civic learning can be cultivated using a variety of teaching and learning practices, included but not limited to service-learning.
Join Dr. Mary F. Price, Director of Faculty Development at the IUPUI Center for Service and Learning, for a foundational conversation on the role of democratic community engagement in higher education, the principles and rationale for civic teaching and learning in higher education and evidence-based frameworks that aid integration and assessment of civic learning and development in general education and disciplinary curricula.
