The CPS Faculty Series offers workshops and exchanges on a range of topics related to teaching and scholarship in the field of community engagement. Faculty will gain tools and resources they can apply and use in their own work. The series seeks to create a community of practitioners who can support each other beyond the sessions. Below is a list of the sessions that will be offered in Fall 2020.
Thursday 9/17, 11am-12:15pm Critical Service Learning in a Virtual World
Facilitators: Dr. Sarah Fouts and community partners at the New Orleans Workers Center for Racial Justice
Please join Dr. Sarah Fouts and community partners at the New Orleans Workers Center for Racial Justice as they discuss their pre-COVID experience leading a long-term, indirect service project with several different service learning courses. This discussion is a great fit for those faculty interested in creating and maintaining authentic relationships in your service learning partnerships, curating a meaningful student experience and impactful service work when you can’t physically be immersed in community, interested in digital humanities projects, and/or publishing case studies on your own work.
Thursday 10/8, 10:30-11:45am Equity and Anti-Racism in Community Engagement
Introduction by Dr. Annaliese Singh (Associate Provost for Diversity and Faculty Development)
Facilitators: Drs. Lisa Molix (Associate Professor, Department of Psychology) and Samantha Francois (Assistant Professor, School of Social Work, and Executive Director of the Violence Prevention Institute)
Thursday 10/29, 11am-12:15pm Grant Sources and Grant Writing in Community-Engaged Research
Facilitator: Dr. Jordan Karubian (Associate Professor, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and CPS Scholar-in-Residence)
