(Re)Design Your Course for Civic Engagement
Emphasize the value of citizenship, service learning, and civic engagement in your course. Identify civic competencies that connect with your discipline and course content, design a syllabus which includes civic engagement components, and develop a plan for a specific course assessment where students demonstrate some aspect of civic learning. Explore ways to promote active learning experiences and assessment through which students can gain an understanding of civic engagement as a lifelong responsibility. This redesign opportunity can be used to develop a course for possible adoption as a Civic Engagement Minor elective. Luncheon is included on each meeting date. This cohort will also participate in the Summer Showcase on August 3, 2017, at the Alumni Center. A $1000 stipend, provided by the American Democracy Project, is available to eligible participants who complete the program. Read more at CTLT.IllinoisState.edu/Civic. Apply to join this cohort by Friday, April 14.
Interested faculty must complete an online application, including a 300-word description of your interest in the redesign process and a syllabus for the course to be redesigned. Questions? Contact Dana Karraker at dmkarra@IllinoisState.edu.
