Engaging Community Partners as Co-Educators, Comrades, and Co-Conspirators
November 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
It is a commonly accepted statement in the community engagement field that community partners function as co-educators of students. However, this construct of co-educator is much harder to put into practice when one is actually creating and implementing a course.
Hear from pairs of faculty and community partners about how their co-educator partnerships work “in practice,” and get their candid insights about the opportunities and challenges inherent in this kind of relationship. Participants will also explore how partnerships can situate faculty and community partners as comrades and co-conspirators in transforming higher education and community spaces to be more just and equitable.
