Community-based Global Learning Institute
Posted by Haverford College on May 28, 2018
August 7 – 9, 2018
Drawing on 10 years of collaboration between and among Amizade, Cornell University, and The Globalsl Network, The 10th Annual institute will proceed through thematic focus on the relationship of engaged learning to categories of citizenship and inclusion, through variously contested spaces, in our current political moment. The Institute is for faculty, administrators, practitioners, community partners, and researchers who are interested in community-engaged learning, working across cultures and with awareness of global context, at home and abroad. It is uniquely designed to be collaborative, open, and participatory.
Participants will think deeply with sector academic and practitioner leaders, and consider innovative approaches in community-based global learning. Past attendees have found the intimate retreat-style format offers opportunities for in-depth conversation, quality feedback, and network-building.
While at the Institute at Haverford College will prepare participants for community-engaged global learning anywhere in the world, this inquiry includes a place-based focus. Participants will consider the intersection of local life with global processes, reflecting on the particular geographies, structures, and demography of the mid-Atlantic region. Themes to explore will include migration and inclusion, engaging diverse student populations, civic engagement, campus activism, global civic learning pathways, and citizenship. Institute registration begins at 2 pm on Tuesday, August 7, with a 3 pm programming start. Activities conclude at 1 pm on Friday, August 9.
