Have you ever wondered how you might partner with community groups as part of the courses you teach? Join us on January 22 to learn how two Carleton faculty members have been able to bring their classrooms into the Ottawa community.
Jesse Stewart, from the Department of Music, will discuss several examples of community-engaged pedagogy drawn from his experiences teaching music at Carleton and in the wider community.Professor Stewart will be joined by Andrew Sproule, a candidate in the Music and Culture masters program.
Aaron Doyle, from the Department of Sociology, along with Sociology PhD students Deborah Conners and Laura McKendy, will discuss experiences teaching a course in Community Engaged Sociology, featuring students working in small teams with community organizations to research and advocate on social issues.
Through specific examples, the speakers will share what they found to be most rewarding and most difficult in teaching and learning through community engagement.
The session runs from 12-1 p.m. in room 422 Dunton Tower. Space is limited, so register here today.
