A challenge of community engagement and service-learning, at all ages, is exposing students to the imperfections of the world while guiding them to be change agents. The events of 2020 have exposed systemic imbalances of our world in vivid ways; from poverty to pollution, and racial oppression to educational inequity. During this interactive workshop participants learn how to build experiential learning programs that challenge us to build reciprocal partnerships in order to understand our interdependence with one another and the natural world. Using the collective wisdom of the group, participants explore the Nobis Big Ideas framework for teaching about social issues by reflecting on their own practice and brainstorming ways to adapt their curriculum.
