Ginsberg Center pres.
Lightning and Thunder Talks – Growth and Engagement
Part of Enriching Scholarship 2019
Includes two Ginsberg Center lightning talks:
Preparing Students to Enter, Engage and Exit Communities
Neeraja Aravamudan, Associate Director for Teaching & Research, Ginsberg Center
Ginsberg Center staff will highlight key elements that faculty & staff should consider to effectively prepare students for community-engaged learning through courses, programs, student-led efforts, and other contexts. Community engagement is framed as working with communities to work towards shared goals, and includes experiences like direct service, volunteering, consulting, community-based research, social entrepreneurship, and more. We will share resources that can support faculty and staff in these efforts during the talk.
Connecting Michigan: A Community Engagement Infrastructure
Dave Waterhouse, Associate Director of the Ginsberg Center
In September 2018, Connecting Michigan launched to explore the feasibility of a coordinated, broadly accessible, technology-enabled infrastructure for community and civic engagement to advance the University of Michigan’s mission and amplify its contributions to the public good. The effort has been led by the Ginsberg Center, in partnership with the Office of Government Relations and the Office of the Provost. This Lightning Talk will share the history of the Connecting Michigan initiative, key findings of Phase 1 feasibility, and plans for Phase 2 and 3 expansion and implementation.
