Campus Compact Webinar - 'Critical Consciousness for Community-Engaged Teaching and Learning' - April 22
Please join the Civic and Community Engagement Office for the webinar "Critical Consciousness for Community-Engaged Teaching and Learning" on Thursday, April 22, from 3:00 to 4:00 pm. This event is presented by Campus Compact as part of its National Webinar Series and is free to members of the Buffalo State College community. Speakers are Aaliyah Baker and Amy Shanafelt.
The idea for this webinar grew out of a Campus Compact Community of Practice titled "Developing Students' Critical Consciousness through Meaningful Praxis in Community Engagement." During this Community of Practice, facilitators and participants alike found the need to continue this increasingly important dialogue and consider ways to further enhance, develop, and theorize critical consciousness in community engaged teaching and learning. Presenters will (1) define critical consciousness as it has been articulated in current and relevant research, (2) describe ways to engage others in their own safe exploration of critical reflection as it relates to the development of a critical consciousness, and (3) provide examples of how critical consciousness has the ability to "intervene in order to change outcomes and realities" and transform and empower the lives of youth.
Please register online for this final presentation in the National Webinar Series.
