The Colloquium on High-Impact Community Engaged Practice


The Colloquium on High-Impact Community Engaged Practice is made up of two of Indiana Campus Compact’s most successful programs, the Service-Learning Institute and the Critically Engaged Teaching Seminar. All aspects of the Colloquium are developed and scaffolded to increase your knowledge and further enhance your engaged scholarship. We work to create spaces where faculty, community engagement professionals, graduate students, and community partners can learn, grow, and interact with one another while building a network of engaged scholars.

We at Indiana Campus Compact are committed to supporting engaged faculty and practitioners through every stage of their professional development process. During this time of continued physical disconnection, we are continually working with our partners across the state and country to ensure that Colloquium participants, at all levels, receive a quality experience.

Interested in bringing a version of the Colloquium, or parts of the Colloquium, to your campus, either in-person or virtually? Contact Laura, Director of Professional Development and Engaged Learning, at laura {at} incampuscompact(.)org, or find a time to connect, to find out more.

WHAT IS THE SERVICE-LEARNING INSTITUTE?

The traditional in-person Service-Learning Institute, better known as SLI (“slee”) is a 2.5 day learning community style institute designed to assist you in transforming your traditional course into a high-impact community-based experience. The Service-Learning Institute focuses on the basics of curricular course design, as well as introduce participants to the concept of high-impact community engaged practices as conceptualized by Hoy and Johnson (2013).

Begin by examining your learning objectives, and end with focusing on how to work with your community partners to co-create high-impact experience for your students. The Institute includes plenary workshops, concurrent learning sessions, and small group learning communities, allowing faculty, graduate students, and community partners the opportunity to focus on their individual learning needs.

Institute Objectives:

  • To increase the number of high-quality, high-impact community engagement experiences courses
  • To share promising practices and generate new ideas
  • To enhance reflection, assessment, and partnerships in curricular and co-curricular high-impact community engagement experiences
  • To build a network of engaged scholars and practitioners

Institute Topics:

  • Introduction to high-impact community engagement practices (Hoy & Johnson, 2013)
  • Designing both curricular and co-curricular high-impact community engagement experiences
  • Creating and assessing learning outcomes connected to community-based experiences
  • Developing meaningful reflection activities
  • Developing authentic community-campus partnerships

  • Introduction to critical service learning (Mitchell, 2008)

July 2021  |  Virtual Experience

At a time when our society is grappling with two different, yet parallel crises—one a global pandemic, and the other a national struggle for social justice and equity—we, the scholar practitioners within the field of community engagement must continue to work towards a more liberated version of higher education. If you seek out ways in which you and your campus can enact the principles of critical community engagement and values of a democratically engaged institution, then join us for the Summer 2021 session of the Critically Engaged Teaching Seminar.

The completely virtual Summer 2021 Seminar delves deeply into how power, privilege, and positionality intersect areas of your community engagement work. And how implications of the current global pandemic effect the various stakeholder participants of both traditional and critical service-learning.

The 2021 Critically Engaged Teaching Seminar Experience

The 2021 Critically Engaged Teaching Seminar encompasses five half-day workshops throughout July 2021 designed to provoke critical conversation and engagement among participants. Each session is 3.5 hours in length and is directly followed by a 30-minute “un-packing” session where participants are able to continually share their thoughts and reflections from that day’s session and how it connects to the whole Seminar experience. Additionally, session facilitators will ensure that session content flows from one session to the next and have worked to integrate active learning components throughout.

Seminar topics include:

  • An introduction to critical community engagement
  • Considerations for critical service learning course development
  • Nurturing authentic partnerships
  • Models to support critical service learning stakeholders
  • Factors for assessing critical service learning

WHO SHOULD ATTEND THE 2021 CRITICALLY ENGAGED TEACHING SEMINAR?

The Critically-Engaged Teaching Seminar has been specifically designed for:

  • Faculty interested in incorporating critical community engagement, community-based research, or other high-impact community engaged practices into their existing community-engaged courses.
  • Community engagement professionals who specialize in providing campus-wide faculty development, work to build authentic community-campus partnerships and administer campus-wide community engagement efforts.
  • Graduate students who are familiar with critical theory and how it intersects with community engagement and are interested in what to further their future community-campus engagement and scholarly work.

ABOUT THE CRITICALLY ENGAGED TEACHING SEMINAR

The Critically-Engaged Teaching Seminar will focus on the intersection between community engagement, high-impact practices, and critical theory and practice. Sessions will cover the work of scholars such as Tania Mitchell (2008, 2015, 2017, 2020), Adrian Hoy and Matthew Johnson (2013), and Margaret Post, Elaine Ward, Nicholas Longo, and John Saltmarsh (2016).

We encourage those who implement both curricular and co-curricular community engagement teaching and learning practices, and are now looking to further develop these experiences by applying a more critical lens in partnership with their community partner. Sessions will allow faculty, community engagement professions, institutional chief engagement officers, graduate students, and community partners to discuss topics of power and privilege, race, gender, and ethnic inequities, and community-university relationships in a space of open dialogue.
