Pitfalls and Possibilities for Ethical Partnerships and Critical Pedagogy in Service Learning and Community Engagement in the COVID-19 Era

Section 3
Thursday, July 9, 2020  |  3:00 PM – 4:30 PM (ET)

This workshop is part of the national Campus Compact summer webinar series. Find more information on this workshop and how to register on the national Campus Compact website.

In the context of service-learning and/or internship programs during the COVID-19 era (and beyond), what does it mean to support participation and voice amongst community partners? How can global educators push students to be more critically reflective about their own positionality as it intersects with their aspirations for participatory development? This session uses case studies of student and host partner experiences to spur reflection and discussion about these crucial questions. We will discuss these cases in Zoom breakout rooms and work to brainstorm optimal responses to each situation. The session draws upon the work of Omprakash (www.omprakash.org), a Seattle-based nonprofit working to help universities build ethical global partnerships and support students with critically-reflective training and mentorship. The session will also include details about the free, open-access online learning programs that Omprakash is offering in response to COVID-19—see https://www.omprakash.org/facing-pandemic—to help universities a) engage with the pandemic from a critical, intersectional lens attentive to issues of power and inequality; 2) attend to crucial issues of self-care during times of crisis, and 3) engage in digital storytelling as an act of healing and transformation.

This workshop is free and open to individuals from Campus Compact partner institutions. Access to the Zoom platform will be provided once registration is complete.

Student Leadership in a Time of Global Crisis: From Ideas to Action for Full Participation in the 2020 Census & Elections

Section 7
Thursday, July 23, 2020  |  3:00 PM – 4:30 PM (ET)

This workshop is part of the national Campus Compact summer webinar series. Find more information on this workshop and how to register on the national Campus Compact website.

Democracy works best when all perspectives are included, but college students face unique barriers to participating in civic life. This panel will present how the James Madison Center for Civic Engagement and Dukes Vote is building the capacity of students as they lead the 2020 Census and voter engagement initiatives. Presenters will discuss how students developed and implemented a campus civic engagement plan and what they’ve learned as best practices and strategies for achieving full participation even in a time of global crisis.

Nonpartisan campus-wide student-led civic engagement initiatives are central components to a lifelong participation in democratic self-governance. The presentation will consist of a panel of JMU students that have first-hand experience building and implementing a campus civic engagement action plan.

Participants will be introduced to best practices for conducting census outreach (deadline for response extended to October 31, 2020), and voter education and mobilization, and developing and advocating contingencies during a time of global crisis that prevents in-person social interactions. We will also discuss the importance of preparing for different contingencies for Fall 2020, depending on the state of the global pandemic and whether there will be opportunities for in-person interactions.

Participants will develop a better understanding of the challenges and barriers students face and effective solutions to these issues.  Participants will leave with a framework for developing a campus civic engagement plan, and be provided with a toolkit of resources.

This workshop is free and open to individuals from Campus Compact partner institutions. Access to the Zoom platform will be provided once registration is complete.

Virtual Mentoring and Tutoring During COVID-19: Preventing K-12 Learning Loss and Building an Online Model for the Future

Section 5
Tuesday, August 4, 2020  |  3:00 PM – 4:30 PM (ET)

This workshop is part of the national Campus Compact summer webinar series. Find more information on this workshop and how to register on the national Campus Compact website.

In response to COVID-19 and the call from community partners in Tampa Bay, the University of South Florida’s Office of Community Engagement and Partnerships moved quickly to facilitate collaborations for online mentoring and tutoring. By utilizing resources at the university and community organizations’ close ties to families in Hillsborough County, a new pathway to prevent K-12 learning loss during COVID-19 emerged.

USF’s College of Education recognized the urgency for practicum students and student-tutor employees to continue learning and working during the pandemic. College of Education (COEDU) students were connected with local community organizations to host online tutoring and mentoring sessions with K-12 youth. The central mission of the program was to prevent K-12 learning loss during COVID-19 in Tampa Bay while COEDU students continued their education and employment in the spring/summer semesters. Key stakeholders across the University also provided support to transition from in-person to online K-12 student support.

These efforts sought to build the foundation for an online mentoring and tutoring model for the COEDU, as well as other departments and colleges at the University, and additional community partners in Tampa Bay. Actions steps, lessons learned engaging stakeholders, and discussion of implications to strengthen community engagement for a post-COVID-19 world will be discussed.

This workshop is free and open to individuals from Campus Compact partner institutions. Access to the Zoom platform will be provided once registration is complete.
