All Together Now: Participatory Techniques for Community Engaged Learning


This is a card deck of educational techniques that can be used by practitioners of community-engaged learning (CEL) to advance student learning and reflection in CEL courses. CEL courses are dynamic by nature and take place in both classroom and community settings where students apply their academic learning to critical community needs. High quality CEL is characterized by continuous and intentionally-scaffolded educational techniques that bridge the classroom and community elements of a CEL course. This card deck will provide users with educational strategies for high impact CEL. The deck is designed as a portable tool for convenient use by facilitators in both classroom and community settings.


  • 48 cards featuring participatory educational techniques and accompanying images
  • Each card provides instructions for a specific teaching technique tailored to CEL courses
  • The reverse side of each card features an image to be used for facilitating reflection
  • The cards can also be used for sorting students into groups
