Writing & Community Learning

March 23, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

At this half-day workshop for faculty, staff, and community partners from across New England, we will engage with big-picture questions about what participants want students to learn in their community-engaged courses and consider how they might use writing to achieve those goals. Participants will hear from renowned community literacy scholar Ellen Cushman, gain valuable writing resources (including sample assignments), and take part in small- and large-group discussions about why, when, and how to use writing across community learning contexts.

Guest Speaker: Ellen Cushman, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, Diversity, and Inclusion; Dean’s Professor of Civic Sustainability at Northeastern University; Cherokee Nation citizen.
