Incorporating Civic Engagement into Your Course: National Grant Opportunity

This session will introduce the Civic Engagement and Public Value undergraduate course requirement. Since 2002, faculty have incorporated a sustained community component into their courses, giving students the opportunity to connect the things they learn in these courses to real world community needs. The Periclean Faculty Leadership (PFL) ProgramTM is a national opportunity for courses in the STEM and Social Sciences. PFLs engage in ongoing faculty development opportunities.

During the session, participants will have the opportunity to talk to faculty who have successfully won grants from Project Pericles. This training is appropriate for those who have experience with Civic Engagement to those who are just beginning.

It focuses on strategies for (1) initiating and conducting a peer observation and on (2) frameworks for providing and using feedback after an observation.
