International Association for Research on Service-Learning and Community Engagement 2013 Conference
Posted by on March 04, 2013
The International Association for Research on Service-Learning and Community Engagement (IARSLCE) is pleased to announce that proposals are now being accepted for the 2013 conference in Omaha, Nebraska. The conference will take place November 6-8, 2013 and is hosted by the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Conference program co-chairs are Julie Dierberger and Paul Sather.
The theme of this year’s conference is Reinvigorating our Process of Discovery: Research Informing Practice in Service-Learning and Community Engagement.
The mission of IARSLCE is to promote the development and dissemination of research on service-learning and community engagement internationally and across all levels of the education system.
The keynote speaker is Parker J. Palmer, Ph.D., who has influenced educators, politicians and spiritual leaders for more than 40 years. This November, he will share his views on spirituality, politics and civic engagement at the 2013 International Association for Research on Service Learning and Community Engagement (IARSLCE) conference, which will be hosted by the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).
Palmer, director and founder of the Center for Courage and Renewal, is the author of nine books, including award-winnings titles like “The Promise of Paradox,” “The Courage to Teach” and, his latest work, “Healing the Heart of Democracy.” Palmer also holds 11 honorary doctorates from institutions across the country and was named one of the 30 “most influential senior leaders” in higher education by 10,000 fellow educators as part of the Leadership Project. In 2010, Palmer was given the William Rainey Harper Award, which has also been given to visionaries such as Margaret Mead, Marshall McLuhan and Paolo Friere.
Palmer will provide the keynote address on Thursday, Nov. 7, at the IARSLCE conference. His remarks will draw heavily from his latest book, which addresses the negative effects of hyperpartisanship through spirituality and the ability to disagree while still respecting each other.
