Do you want to improve the design of civic engagement assignments to maximize student learning and to meet institutional expectations? Come to this highly interactive workshop to learn about civic engagement assignment design principles and strategies. Bring assignment instructions to receive constructive feedback from peers and experts in civic engagement instruction and research. Offer your insights and suggestions to others. Walk away from the workshop with concrete plans to enhance assignments that lead to deep reflection and development in students.

After a brief introduction of the assignment design principles and tools, participants will join small group breakout rooms to share and receive peer feedback through a structured discussion, facilitated by experienced civic engagement instructors and experts. Our expert team includes:

  • Atina Pascua, UH Mānoa Director of the Office of Civic and Community Engagement
  • Ulla Hasager, College of Social Sciences Director of Civic Engagement
  • Yao Zhang Hill, Assessment and Curriculum Support Center

The workshop will end with a group reflection on civic engagement assignment design tips and strategies.

Workshop registrants are asked to be ready to share instructions for one civic engagement assignment with colleagues during the workshop. It can be a link to a shareable document or you can share your screen during the small group discussion.

These events are presented by the Office of Civic and Community Engagement, College of Social Sciences Program for Civic Engagement/ACCESS Engagement, Assessment and Curriculum Support Center, and the OFDAS Center for Teaching Excellence
